Exegete Everything

The word "exegete" means literally "to lead out." The subject of Biblical Hermeneutics is dedicated to the science and art of interpreting Scripture. As a Christian, I believe that we should interpret, share, and apply Scripture, culture, community, and ourselves. This site is an attempt at capturing some of that in my own life.


Husband: Married to the lovely Mrs. Jana for 12 years!

Daddy: Tovah (6) and Jude (5)



I've been a Christian for 20 years and continually seek to understand and live out of my identity as one of God's children.

I have the privilege of serving Redemption Church in Seattle, Washington. I work with an incredible team and get to focus primarily on teaching and theological development of the church.

Home Cook: Dabbling

My last meal? The food would be much less significant than the company.
— Mario Batali

Why cook?

1) Craft. It's a craft that allows me to work with my hands creatively and constructively. 

2) Hobby. Life can be quite busy. I needed some kind of outlet, you know? So, out of all the hobbies I could take a swing at, I wanted one that wouldn’t take me away from my family and would bless my friends. 

3) Hospitality. I LOVE entertaining people. I always have. Having our home filled with family and friends from all walks of life is something that Jana and I genuinely enjoy. 

4) Jesus. The Bible itself has tons to say about who God is around the table.
