I am very privileged to serve as Senior Pastor of Alhambra True Light Presbyterian Church in Alhambra, California. Before moving to Los Angeles, I served churches in Oregon and North Carolina. I have also taught courses on Christianity and American Religion at the university level. My Ph.D (Religious Studies, Trinity Saint David, University of Wales, 2011) concentrates on the Bible and slavery controversy in 19th Century America. In addition to my dissertation, I have written numerous papers on the topic. Most recently, my article – “Slavery” – was published in the Oxford Encyclopedia of the Bible and Ethics. I currently live in Pasadena. I enjoy reading, playing bass in a local band, listening to my wife play her viola, movies, and spin class.
