About Kevin

I hold a PhD in Theology from Bob Jones University and a ThM in Leadership and Intercultural Studies from Trinity Evangelical Divinity School. I have also studied historical geography at Jerusalem University College in Israel and finished the coursework for a Doctor of Intercultural Studies at Grace Theological Seminary.

Prior to my teaching role at BJU, I served as a resident teacher in the Philippines and later as an interim pastor in Singapore. Ministry opportunities have taken me to nearly 50 countries, serving as adjunct or visiting professor for more than a half dozen colleges and universities and speaking at dozens of churches and conferences. Most recently my family and I have lived for 14 months in Tamil Nadu, India where I worked as a business and educational consultant and served as an interim principal for a 400 student Bible college. My wife, Rachel, and I have enjoyed ministering together in Europe, Africa, the Middle East, and Asia.

I currently serve as a deacon and director of discipleship and missions in our local church. I also teach Sunday school and serve regularly for a global missions agency, training its missionaries on furlough or deputation. I'm also founder of TLM (training leaders for ministry), a personal productivity course and personal follow up coaching that helps ministry leaders grow personally and stay mission focused. I love spending time with my wife and children and enjoy hiking Colorado’s 14ers.
