Academic & Vocational Goals

After much thought and prayer, in June 1999, I submitted an application to study at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School (TEDS) in Deerfield, Illinois. On December 6, 1999, I was offered admission to the Master of Arts with a concentration in the Christian Thought/Church history program for the Fall semester of the 2000-2001 academic year (extended to 2001-2002). This hybridized program, combining theology, philosophy, and Church history, is geared for the individual who intends to pursue a career in college or university teaching and who will need a research degree which provides competency in more than one of the theological disciplines.

In the Christian Thought concentration, I will take my emphasis courses in Early Church History and cognate studies in Philosophy of Religion. Following this degree program I intend to pursue another master of arts degree and then a doctorate in a religious history-related field at a secular university. (My special interest is in the period when the Hebrew Faith came into contact with Greco-Roman philosophy, c. 200 B.C.E. to 70 C.E., and the early growth of the Hellenized Christian Church, c. 70 to 325 C.E.)

After completing these degrees, I may teach at a university or seminary in the areas of theology and history or apply to work with the ministry of L'Abri Fellowship. These options would serve as opportunities for me to keep learning, thinking and perhaps be able to help others who are honestly asking the same questions.

My life's dream is to write books and articles that will accurately retell the Christian Story in a fresh way to the modern world--in a manner that some of my generation might be more apt to listen to and accept. I have also recently been considering the idea of establishing an organization dedicated to realizing this endeavor. Such an organization would express this vision through broad-ranging communication avenues well suited to storytelling such as film.
