Greetings! Thanks for visiting the site.
Like you, I wear a lot of hats. I am a husband, father, grandfather, pastor, professor, and author. I am the Director of the Bachelor of Applied Theology program at California Baptist University. I serve as a pastor of Fellowship Baptist Church in Riverside, CA.
Also like you, I strive to live faithfully before God and others. I strive to walk in a manner worthy of my calling in Christ–24/7. And I need encouragement. If you do, too, then you may find some here. At least, that’s my hope.
I will share resources and insights which focus on serving Christ’s church (God’s covenant people)–encouraging believers to live out their calling in the everyday world we inhabit. A different way to say this is that our theology is meant to be applied to life–thus, AppliedTheology.
I am also concerned for the persecuted church, so I will point you to some updates and resources. We can be encouraged by these faithful brothers and sisters suffering on account of Christ. In many ways, their lives exemplify Applied Theology–living out their calling in Christ in real time.
Finally, I will from time to time throw in some pictures of God’s glorious creation. These pictures (like my header pic) are not professional, so don’t judge harshly. Just enjoy the beauty.
