  • Where did you grow up?

In the small town of Sparta, Tennessee.

  • What is your favorite verse, book or story in the Bible? Why?

My favorite story in the Bible is probably 1 Kings 19 when God speaks to Elijah in a still small voice.

It is a reminder to find the quiet center where God dwells.

I love all the Marvel movies because they are such good storytelling.

  • Who are three people you admire?

Sharlande Sledge, associate pastor at Lake Shore Baptist Church in Waco, Texas, and one of my mentors in seminary; Beth Moore; and Brian McLaren.

  • What is one little-known fact about yourself?

I love turtles. If I see them attempting to cross the street, I stop and help move them to the other side.
