How did past ministry/professional experience lead to your position at Calvary: I actually came to Calvary in 2015 as a student. I was previously a bi-vocational youth pastor who was pursuing a degree in structural engineering. As I worked in ministry, it became clear that I desired to pursue full-time ministry and a further understanding of the Scriptures. With that desire, I searched for a good, biblical school – Calvary University. Through that, God has provided a huge part for me in this ministry.

Ministry/Professional involvement outside of Calvary: I am the director of The 1024 Project, writer on johnoglesby.org, partner in Renovation Podcast, and active attender at Fellowship Greenwood. I have dedicated my life to knowing Scripture and making it known to others.
