“I believe in Christianity as I believe that the Sun has risen, not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else.” ― C.S. Lewis, Weight of Glory
John is a student of religion, theology, and classical studies, as well as a filmmaker. Through studying world religions, history and philosophy, he has become a well-balanced teacher, speaker, presenter, and advocate of Christianity. His attempts at engaging in civil dialogue with non-believers have been appreciated in debating the existence of God, historical Christianity, and the competency of the Christian faith. After spending many years in the Creative and Internet industries, John decided to use his skills in directing and producing the documentary movie My Week in Atheism (2014). This film is an up-close encounter with modern atheism in an attempt to learn while focusing on the reality of two opposing worldviews with his friend, and atheist talk show host, David Smalley. John is currently directing a new documentary film 40 Churches in 40 Weeks (2016), which is an examination of church in America and tracks across the country from Barstow, CA to Wilmington, NC.
John is currently in the process of completing a Master's degree in Christian and Classical Studies (Knox Theological Seminary), he holds a Bachelor's degree in Religion with emphasis on Biblical Studies (Liberty University), and an Associate's degree in Practical Theology (Christ For the Nations Institute). He is also a member of the academic Society of Biblical Literature and Phi Theta kappa National Honor Society.
