As you see below, I have graduated from Southern Seminary with an M.Div.
Here is what is next:
In January I will enroll at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School, in the Ph.D. program in theological studies with an emphasis in historical theology. Trinity is a suburb of Chicago. We plan to move in December.
Coming to this decision was a long process. Last summer I came to the conclusion I definitely wanted to earn a Ph.D. Once we made that decision I struggled for several months whether to focus on systematic theology or on church history and historical theology. In September I began working as a research assistant to Dr. Greg Wills. This job, which mostly involves working with primary source documents confirmed that I want to spend a few years focusing on church history.
The next question was where to go. I only applied at Southern, and at Trinity. When both schools accepted me, this made for a very tough decision. We went back and forth several times, but eventually settled on going to Trinity. It looks like my supervisor will probably be Dr. Sweeney
We will be moving in December, Lord willing. We hope these next few years will be fruitful both in ministry and in academic preparation for future ministry.
