I am currently pursuing a Masters of Theology in Church History at Liberty University in Virginia. I hold an M.Div from Hood Theological Seminary in Salisbury, North Carolina, and a Bachelors in European History from Western Carolina University. I have been in vocational ministry for over 10 years and have served as a senior pastor for the past 5.5 years. My objective is to transition from vocational ministry into higher education.
My master's thesis focused on Christian apologetics but I have always been more interested in history than just about anything else. Much of my research centers on the church and state relationship. I am currently working on a project titled "The Roots and Fruits of the Westminster Confession of Faith Concerning Church/State Relations."
