Moral Theology

Contextual Theology


I moved to Cambridge to take up my studies in the fall of 2017. Prior to relocating to England, I served in parish ministry (ordained) for six years in Vancouver, BC, Canada.

After finishing a bachelor's degree in theology, I went on to complete an M.A. at Regent College. My studies were in the area of Christian doctrine, with supervision by Prof. Hans Boersma and Prof. Ross Hastings. Most recently, alongside my parish commitments, I completed a Th.M. (theology and ethics focus) under Prof. Richard Topping at the Vancouver School of Theology.

I am very grateful for the opportunity to write a PhD in the Divinity Faculty at Cambridge.
