Affiliate Professor of Historical Theology
Teaching and preaching are my greatest passions. It’s great to watch new ideas take root in someone’s mind and heart, and the resulting life transformation. I am excited, challenged and encouraged, time and again, when human conversation is taken up by the Holy Spirit and truth happens in the church. I enjoy losing myself in a good mystery story, especially the British mystery genre. I also enjoy traveling, walking, and playing brain games on my phone. I am married to Georges, and we have three children, Nadine, Rémy and Pascal. It’s always special when we can hang out together.
