God's Big Story

In the north woods of Wisconsin, at HoneyRock Camp, I will be using experiential education to teach Gap Year students about the grand narrative of the Bible. From creating a gigantic map on which to mark historical events to hiking through the woods to grasp concepts of "place" we are bound to have a ton of fun. This is in partnership with Wheaton College.

Between the Testaments: A Crash Course in Intertestamental History

This seminar, held over two afternoons, will give you an understanding of the tremendous changes that took place in the Mediterranean and Middle-Eastern world between what we call the “Old Testament” and the “New Testament”.  Using this information, we will have a better understanding of both the world of Jesus and the gospels, and the wider world early Christians lived in and sought to influence with the gospel message.
