  • Interests: Exercising, spending time with family
  • Why I'm at Cedarville: Cedarville's commitment to the Scriptures makes for a good fit with evangelical biblical scholarship. There is great potential here for the building of programs devoted to biblical language and exegesis. I greatly enjoy the relationships that I have here with other faculty in the School of Biblical and Theological Studies.
