Hello! Welcome to my little corner of the internet.
I am a student and occasional writer based in the North Chicago suburbs. I study ministry and philosophy at Trinity International University and plan to enter pastoral (likely youth) ministry after college.
My main area of interest lies, broadly speaking, in the humanities and in theology. There are three topics that have consumed my focus as of late:
- Motivated by my own experiences in secular society, I ask questions about the tendencies we see in the West and how they impact ministry (Taylor).
- I ask questions about Paul’s approach to Law, and how this could be generalized into not just a discussion of Jewish Law but the institution of Law itself (Agamben).
- Seeking to reach the lost and train others to do likewise, I ask questions about the truths, both factually and existentially, that accompany the Christian faith, and how best to articulate these (Platt, Williams and Moreland).
Beyond school work, I write music and I volunteer with the middle school students at my church. I am employed by a para-church high school ministry called the National School Project in the school year and by Camp Timber-lee in the summer.
