His dissertation focused on Christ-centered hermeneutics and homiletics. His passion is communicating the Word of God, whether through preaching, teaching, or small group settings.

One of his favorite verses is 1 Thess 5:23–24: "Now may the God of peace himself sanctify you completely, and may your whole spirit and soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. He who calls you is faithful; he will surely do it."
