About the Speaker
I am a member of Faith in the Valley Clergy Caucus. I am a professor at Fresno Pacific University where I teach interfaith and religious studies and also promote interfaith work. Prior to university teaching I worked in a Christian international development and ministry for 18 years, in which 6 years of that I was working in India. Since 2011 I have taught courses in cultural, religious, biblical/theological, and interfaith studies at Fresno Pacific University. I have become active in local social justice initiatives, including those that work across faith communities.
