I serve as the chaplain for the Presbyterian Church in America and as advisor to Harvard Undergraduate Fellowship—the local chapter of Reformed University Fellowship (RUF) at Harvard. Although I grew up as a Presbyterian in Virginia, and never wanted to be minister, only toward the end of high school did I gain much interest in religious issues. But at the time, my interest was mostly academic.
During my college years, my faith grew much deeper. I was involved in RUF as an undergraduate at Vanderbilt University, and it took that community of Christian believers to teach me to live in accord with the faith that I had always been taught. My time as an undergraduate also provided wonderful opportunities for me to get to know others with very different religious beliefs. It wasn't always pretty, but I began to appreciate interfaith dialogue.
Having accepted a Naval R.O.T.C. scholarship, I entered the military as a Naval officer, and served for four years. My experience in the military introduced me to an even wider religious and socio-economic circle. My own faith deepened even more through those years, and I felt God leading me toward Christian ministry. So after receiving my Master of Divinity degree from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, I received the call to assume the chaplaincy here at Harvard.
My wife, Adrienne, and I met as undergraduates at Vanderbilt, and we love Cambridge and the Boston area—even the weather! I love discussions about literature, film, or music; tossing a Frisbee around with other people; and watching college basketball.
I enjoy meeting with students talking about their questions and their personal struggles—or to simply connect students to various resources at Harvard and around Cambridge. If you would like to talk some time, please contact me!
