As a follower of Jesus the risen Lord, teaching the Bible is a privilege that enriches the lives of students for the sake of the kingdom of God. We have a mission as a kingdom of priests to mediate the image of God and the good news about his saving grace in the world (Gen 1:26-27; Exod 19:6; Matt 28:16-20; 1 Pet 2:9; Rev 1:6). I want to equip students to engage with Scripture and their diverse cultural contexts in ways that are thoughtful, critical of injustices, charitable with those who disagree, and inviting to those who doubt (Matt 28:17).

My teaching philosophy is to guide students in cultivating “awe” and kingdom “faith-fullness” by leading them through the Bible, particularly the Old Testament. By “awe” I mean the fear of the Lord and an increasing joy for his works in creation and redemption (Ps 111; Prov 1:7; Amos 5:8; Heb 12:28). By “faith-fullness” I mean education designed to strengthen our faith and faithfulness as citizens of God’s kingdom (Matt 6:33; Rom 14:17; Acts 14:22; 19:8). Ultimately, the goal is not to make us masters of the subject but subjects of the Master, the Triune God. He is worthy of our very best, all in gratitude for his transforming love that makes us worth it.
