I am a pastor, professor, artist and writer. I have exhibited my artwork throughout the U.S. and abroad. You can find some of my writings at Word and Way,  Faithfully Magazine, and Patheos.

My most recent book Healing Racial Divides: Finding Strength in Our Diversity can be purchased from the publisher, Chalice Press.

I have also written Walking the Blue Line: A Police Officer Turned Community Activist Provides Solutions to the Racial Divide, Machiavellian Ministry: What Faith-Filled Leaders Can Learn from a Faithless Politician, The Lord Gave Me This: Understanding Historic Leadership Development Practices of the Black Church to Prepare Tomorrow’s Leaders, and Leadership in Black and White: Practical Suggestions for the Church to Become a Healing Presence Within Divided Communities.

I have earned undergraduate, graduate, and post-graduate degrees in Biblical studies and organizational leadership, arts management and leadership, and theology. Most recently, I completed the Doctor of Ministry degree in Congregational Health from Central Baptist Theological Seminary.

I currently serve as the Director of Contextualized Learning and Assistant Professor of Practical Theology for Central Baptist Theological Seminary.

I also serve as consultant and coaching Associate for community engagement and organizational effectiveness for nonprofit and for-profit organizations through Pinnacle Leadership Associates. I specialize in addressing issues on race and understanding and resolving the racial divide, human relations, improving police-citizen interactions, and community engagement, and am proficient in multiple other areas.
