Josh's passion for theological education arises from ministry experiences in local churches and para-church organizations. The urban and global contexts of those ministries have shaped his interest in the interconnection of church and context. In his research he seeks to uncover how particular contexts shape and challenge ecclesial identity, and in turn nurture and inform Christian ethics and practice. In his teaching, he enjoys helping students discover the invariable relationship between Christian thought and practice.
He loves to be in the outdoors, exploring and discovering new places. This passion is shared by his spouse, Nell, and their two boys who demonstrate a strong curiosity for nature.
