Wrapping up a PhD at Claremont in Practical Theology: Religious Education. I am fascinated with the intersection of Theology & Culture.


Bo was born in Ohio, learned to talk in Georgia, was raised in Chicago and went to High School in Saskatchewan, Canada. He married a girl from Montana, they moved to New York for a year and then went to college in Redding, California. Their first church was in Saratoga, NY and before Claremont, California  they lived in the Pacific Northwest where Bo got his master’s degree in Portland. They have been married for 25 years.  As a couple, they go to used bookstores, cook slow meals together, and watch PBS. Life and ministry have led them on adventures in over 23 countries.

My dissertation is a  critical race theory about diversity in denominational leadership.

This blog is to innovate theological concepts and engage new ideas.

My field of Practical Theology is an inter-disciplinary approach which allows me to engage the sociology of religion, postmodern thought, critical theory, and education.
