Director of Academic Services and Registrar

I love the church, places of education, and the formative work that comes from both areas. It has been a delight and privilege to be engaged in that sort of formative work for the past couple of decades, and I am excited to continue that work at Calvin Theological Seminary (CTS).

For 14 years, I was a high school teacher at Calvin Christian High School in Grandville, Michigan, where I delighted in forming the hearts, souls, and minds of students through English education. For the past eight years, I have served as the Director of Outdoor Education at Camp Roger in Rockford, Michigan, where I delighted in the good work of helping young people encounter and celebrate God’s love for his children through relationships and experiences in creation. Through all of this, I have looked at education as one of the graces of sanctification, where through formative experiences, we are drawn nearer to God while developing a greater capacity to better love and serve God and neighbor.

My wife Erin, a musician and teacher, and I have been married for 22 years. We have three sons: Samuel, John, and Luke. Together, we enjoy being active outdoors (trail running, cycling, hiking, camping), reading (all sorts of genres and styles, but especially Lewis and Tolkien), and playing music (mostly classical, folk, and bluegrass). For the past 16 years, we have attended the Church of the Servant in Grand Rapids, Michigan, where we regularly contribute in areas of worship.

I am grateful to now serve as the Director of Academic Services and Registrar at CTS. I look forward to getting to know the students, faculty, and staff, the programs and partnerships, and the larger CTS community. I have deeply appreciated the warmth of welcome I have received, and I am eager to continue learning how I can serve CTS effectively in this role.
