I am the Campus Minister at Maryville College, ordained through the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.). It's my job to be the minister for students, faculty, and staff of the college and to facilitate the spiritual inquiry and religious life on campus. I strive to do this in a way that promotes respect and curiosity about the variety of religious and spiritual commitments that are represented on campus and to honor each person and their commitments and questions. I work in the Center for Campus Ministry (CCM), where we help organize and lead programs of religious life, including chapel services at 1:15 on Tuesdays, and we also facilitate and promote community engagement, both in and outside of the classroom. I also serve as director of the Bonner Scholars, Bradford Scholars, Church and College Scholars, Chapel Scholars, Isaac Anderson Fellows, and Maryville Adventures in Studying Theology (MAST).
In the Spring semester, I teach a course called "The Road to Justice" which considers the history of the civil rights movement and current justice issues. From time to time, I teach courses in Biblical Studies and Ethics.
