Tell us a little about yourself. I am a retired United Methodist professor and minister. I have lived and worked in churches in six states. My wife is also a United Methodist minister. We have two children and now live them and their families.
What was your motivation behind this project? I wanted to address the extremely difficult situation in which I worked for 18 years as a professor and counselor. So many people were hurt by the administration of the church-related college where I taught and headed my department.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? A recognition of how much we have lost by the radical secularization of church-related higher education. I also want for people to recognize the value and importance of standing up for what is right regardless of the personal consequences.
How were you personally impacted by working on this project? This was the most painful experience of my life. It cost me and my family almost everything we had worked for. It is also the moment in my life when I found out what I really believed and what was worth sacrificing everything for.
Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists? William Faulkner's works. James Tunstead Burtchaell's book, The Dying of the Light: The Disengagement of Colleges and Universities from their Christian Churches(Grand Rapids: Eerdmans, 1998). Bishop G. Bromley Oxnam's witness as to what a church-related college should be.
Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know: God is with us even in the most difficult situations, when we stand up for what Jesus Christ has taught us. We are never alone when we witness to the right in prophetic ministry.
