Teaching Philosophy

Whether it is in biblical studies or ancient history, my job is to help students build new ways of thinking; especially about how to read their Bibles, so that they can love God and obey him for the rest of their lives.

Background

The son of missionary parents who led a ministry amongst lepers in Nigeria, Ken returned to Canada to attend Caronport High School and Briercrest Bible College. While studying at the University of Saskatchewan he married Judy and they moved to Caronport in 1972. They have four married sons and seven grandchildren. Ken enjoys making functional pottery, working with his hands, and especially, introducing college students to the Old Testament narrative, the Prophets and their development in the New Testament.

My experience at Briercrest exceeded getting an education. My heart and mind were transformed as I met God in the classrooms, the dorms, and chapel. I never anticipated seeing God so clearly through my studies.
