My professional life began as a professor in Ozark Christian College in Missouri, and after graduate studies at Wheaton, Harvard, and Princeton, I served as a pastor in Redwood City for ten years and taught a course at Canada College for seven years in "The Bible as History". During this time I earned a D.Min. at Golden Gate Baptist Theological Seminary (now named Gateway). Now for a number of years I have served in lay capacities, interim ministries, and served churches both in the classroom and pulpit.

2020 Workshop

Evangelism & Outreach: Your Gospel is Too Small

3/7/2020 11:15 - 12:30 p.m. Room: WC 215

We will look at the shrinking of the Gospel as good news for isolated individuals who can populate heaven, rather than embracing a full-orbed Gospel than allows us to work toward the kingdom of God on earth, which Jesus taught us to pray for. Are we preaching the Gospel in a way that segregates people or builds community? Are we more busy managing boundaries among us rather than enlarging the kingdom work we are called to share? What is the end goal of preaching the Gospel? Is it escape from the world or transformation of the world? Come lets deepen our mission by expanding our understanding of the Gospel.
