Living Faith is a Christian blog that interacts with a variety of biblical, theological and practical topics written by Grand Canyon University's College of Theology faculty and specially invited guests of the college. Our content provides practical and biblical advice from a Christian worldview for living our faith in the midst of an increasingly secularized world. In addition, our content wrestles with cultural topics and issues that challenge how we live out our faith as believers. For this reason, contributors to our Christian blog strive to write with compassion and apologetic concern to honor Christ and edify the church in every way possible.

Faculty Spotlight

Who am I and how did God lead me here?
I am the son of a single mother who raised my brother, David, and I. My mother proudly served in the USAF for 33 years, and my brother is also serving with 22 years, so my affinity for the military is genetic. Currently, I am finishing up my dissertation which has been quite the challenge. I enjoy sports having coached college football for four years. As I mature, I continue to play basketball although; my game is a “shadow” of what it used to be.

What do I enjoy most in the College of Theology and in my ministry?
I enjoy being a part of a team that is actively mentoring college students in the discovery of God’s love and his plan for their lives. Teaching Christian Worldview (CWV) is a privilege, one I take extremely seriously as it is my calling to equip every student in my class with the truth and application of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

What advice do I have for theology students?
Embrace thinking critically; do not take anyone at their word, study, struggle and study some more in seeking the truth as it is available. When you find it, seek out a group (church, peers, mission, etc.) that shares your convictions and align yourself as a participant of a “movement in truth.” You are our future and our world needs beacons of truth!  (Philippians 2:14-15)
