Associate Professor of Practical and Intercultural Theology
Department of Practical and Intercultural Theology
Jim’s passion is to see the people of God transformed by the Word of God. He has dedicated his life to presenting truth in a way that changes lives. It has been particularly important to him to provide theological education to those who have the least access to it. After the fall of communism, he saw the vacuum of truth with the fall of Marxism and committed himself to serving in Romania for many years. The opportunity to serve at Tyndale provides access to students from all over the world.
Jim lives in Badhoevedorp, the Netherlands, with his wife Janice. They have twin daughters who are both married.
