In Search of Christ in Latin America

During my studies at Fuller I came to realize something: many evangelicals are unaware of some of the great resources that are being produced by theologians around the world. There are probably some sociological reasons for this (American in general tend not to be as globally aware as the citizens of other countries) but thereContinue reading “In Search of Christ in Latin America”

Training Pastors in Uganda

I mentioned in my last post that I will be going to Africa Renewal University, which is in Kampala, Uganda to teach an MA level Systematic Theology course. Our church has an awesome partnership with the school. We recently helped support 20 Sudanese students as they are working towards their BA in Theology.

I’m Going to Uganda!

It has been 12 long years since my first trip to Uganda, and a lot has changed since then!  Just over a decade ago I had started college at UCLA and began to serve at The Church at Rocky Peak.

What They Really Need Is…

So yesterday (4/19/13) I presented a paper at the Evangelical Theological Society’s Far Western Annual Conference. I talked about how Pneumatology can integrate Atonement and Epistemology. As I tell people that I am pretty active in reading/writing theology some people wonder what the point of all of that is. Some wonder why I devote soContinue reading “What They Really Need Is…”

The Next Pope Will Be…

A few weeks ago Pope Benedict XVI resgined from his positions as the Cardinal of Rome. To a certain extent this makes sense (though its virtually unprecedented). Here are some reasons why that made sense: He is old: He is the fifth oldest person to have been elected pope. He is an academic at heart:Continue reading “The Next Pope Will Be…”
