SPEAKING INFORMATION • SCHEDULE • INQUIRIES
Sharing Gospel Hope + Help in Truth + Love
My talks are Christ-centered, uphold the sufficiency of the Scriptures, and aim at addressing matters of the heart, or "inner man": thoughts, motives, desires, and hopes. In messages that revolve around common counseling issues (such as depression, anxiety, anger, self-harm, etc.) I adhere to a dualistic view of man—that we are embodied souls—and promote a biblically holistic approach to addressing these issues. For further clarification, please refer to the ACBC's 95 Theses for an Authentically Christian Commitment to Counseling. I am a member of Trinity Point Church in South Carolina, which is affiliated with the SBC, and speak/write from the influence of the reformed tradition.
