As a scholar, I focus my research and scholarship in the fields of homiletics and rhetoric, particularly Black preaching and Black rhetoric. I’m currently a Ph.D. student in the African American Preaching and Sacred Rhetoric program at Chrisitan Theological Seminary (Indianapolis, IN). My research is focused on the intersection of Blackness, Queerness, and Sacred Rhetoric. I earned dual Master of Divinity and Master of Theological Studies degrees at Claremont School of Theology; thesis: “Ministry Gifts in Ephesians 4:11 as a Model for a New Church Plant in the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ).”
If you’re interested in a practitioner-scholar who focuses on practical theology, preaching, and rhetoric, particularly through a Black and Queer lens. I’m available for speaking engagements, workshops, and I’m open to writing opportunities. Rates vary based on work. Let’s explore the possibilities – contact me.
I’m the Managing Editor of the Homiletic (The Journal of the Academy of Homiletics). Read a book review I wrote for Homiletic (The Journal of the Academy of Homiletics) here.
