Currently, he serves with World Outreach (ITEN) as a specialist in missional theology. He recently served as professor of Discipleship and Biblical Theology at the Arab Baptist Theological Seminary in Beirut, Lebanon (2012-2018) and continues as an adjunct faculty at ABTS and Fuller Theological Seminary.

He assists in training leaders for the church by teaching in the areas of the Trinity, Christology, Biblical theology and spiritual formation. He enjoys acting as an informal mentor for a number of students and aspiring leaders of the church in the Muslim world. Some of those are former Muslims while others are from the minority Christian background community.
He is a Teaching Elder (Presbytery of the Pacific Northwest) and served as an assistant pastor for six years at Cedar Springs Presbyterian in Knoxville, TN.
