Teaching

Recently, I’ve had a few unique speaking opportunities that are worth noting here. Otherwise, most of my teaching efforts have been carried out at Foundation Baptist College. I’ve listed course descriptions for my classes there below.

  • How Luther Became Right With God (and You Can Too!) (October 30, 2016). I had an opportunity to speak about Luther’s life and impact at Meadowlands Baptist Church in Edmonton, AB. Video and audio available.
  • Reformation Conference (October 12–16, 2016). I gave a week-long seminar at Foundation Baptist Church in Calgary, AB that focused on Luther, Zwingli, and Calvin. Text and screen capture video from the sessions is available here.
