Academic History and Interests

I graduated from The Master’s University (TMU) in 2010 with a Business Management and Finance degree. I then went on to study at The Master’s Seminary from 2010 to 2017 where I graduated with an MDiv (2013), ThM in Old Testament Studies (2014), and a PhD in Old Testament Studies (2017).

I am interested in various areas of academic studies. Some of my favorites are as follows.

  • Biblical Languages (Greek and Hebrew primarily)
  • Old Testament Textual Criticism
  • Pentateuch and Biblical Law
  • Baptism
  • Dispensationalism
  • Covenant Theology
  • LGBT and CRT Issues

I have served in various ministries since 2011. I had a brief 2-year stint as a pastor of an English-Korean ministry and 3 years serving as a youth director for student ministries at a church in southern California. Currently, I minister at The Shepherd’s Church in Cary, NC as the shepherd of the young adult ministry.


I grew up in northern Minnesota, where my parents and most of my family still live. And God has blessed me with a wonderful Californian girl, Kinsley. And together, we have been blessed with three beautiful children: two sons and a daughter. Out of all that God has given me to do in life, there is nothing else in life I enjoy more than being a husband and father.

Growing up, I played baseball and swam almost every day of my life through college. I still enjoy playing sports and am currently really into volleyball and frisbee to unwind in my free time. Other hobbies include reading, hiking, working out, and chess.
