Because you want to be challenged, not spoon-fed.

Because you want to go deeper in your understanding of theology and examine how it impacts your life.

Because you want space to learn, and doubt, and ask questions.

Because you want to know what the Wesleyan Church believes and why it believes it.

Because, deep down, you know that what you believe matters and now is the time to explore what you believe, why you believe it, and how it’s impacting your life.

Because it’s time for more.

Despite what the name of this blog suggests, it has nothing to do with either wine or milk.  It’s a reference to Isaiah 55:1-2 that highlights that our true joy (wine) and nourishment (milk) come from God.

I’ve been a Christian most of my life. I question, doubt, study, get distracted, but always circle back. I love books (especially mystery novels), art, and HGTV.  I could live off Coca-cola and M&M’s but I’ve been told this would not be wise.

I’m an ordained minister in the Wesleyan Church, currently living in Mongolia with my family, serving the church here. I’ve been an adjunct instructor at Western Seminary, Indiana Wesleyan University, Kingswood Extended, Spring Arbor University, and Cornerstone University.  I have a MA in Exegetical Theology and a ThM from Western.  I love theology as an academic discipline but I love it even more when I can help someone see how their beliefs are impacting their life (for good or for bad) and walk with them as they challenge and reorient their beliefs.

I’m here, on Wine & Milk, to serve the church by helping her people grow in their understanding and application of truth so they can have a more vibrant relationship
