Kevin has taught for over two decades in Christian schools in Guatemala, in Kansas, and in Littleton, Colorado, where he currently teaches at Front Range Christian School and lives with his wife and two daughters. He holds a PhD in Religious Studies from Boston University, as well as a master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction and a bachelor’s degree in Spanish from Wichita State University. He loves reading, writing, and collaborating with others on projects that bring together cultural studies, spiritual formation and education. He is currently exploring the viability of a professional development venture aimed at helping Christian schools grow in Christ-centeredness.
This discussion covers a lot of ground - we discuss what teenagers are really worried about — as reported by them, and how we can be non-anxious presences in their lives. We talk about what it means to do well in school, how we ought to be engaging with culture and difficult conversations as followers of Jesus, and of course we share our best guesses about where the future of Christian education is headed.
