I’ve been profoundly influenced over the years by wonderful teachers who love the Lord with both their hearts and their minds and who devote themselves to the ongoing work of the church. I teach at FPBS because I’d like now to follow the example of my mentors and help shape the next generation of pastors and Christian leaders.
