For me teaching is the moment knowledge becomes alive and when a community focuses its attention on learning together. In my own personal approach to teaching this is built off a personal pursuit to think deeply and live faithfully. Currently (Fall 2017) I am teaching “Comparative Religion” at Saint Joseph’s University in Philadelphia as an adjunct instructor. Teaching courses revolving around religion, culture, history, and media has sharpened me as a thinker, presenter, listener, and contributor to these fields. Through teaching I have become more able to lead and facilitate students to explore these fields either for the first time or after years of intentional engagement. I believe that we each learn and articulate ideas in diverse ways and thus teaching is an opportunity to reach beyond information limits and present/produce knowledge in a multimodal forms such as film, music, audio, performance, and visual arts. I am honored to teach as it fuels my personal learning and research as a lifelong learner. For the last six years I have been privileged to teach and learn from students in diverse locations and institutions. At the University of Pennsylvania I have co-taught and served as a teaching assistant both in person and online. From 2011 to 2013 I served as Profesor Visitante (Visiting Professor) of History and Theology at Seminario Sudamericano (2011-2013), where I taught undergraduate courses. I have also guest lectured in Venezuela, Colombia, and Guatemala as well as Trenton, NJ and Philadelphia, PA. Some of the topics I have taught/teach include: Comparative Religion, Global Pentecostalism, American Jesus, Social Change through Participatory Filmmaking, Gods Ghosts and Monsters, Introduction to Buddhism, Southern Appalachian Religion, Eco-Theology, and Religious History in the 19th and 20th Centuries.
