I’m a historian, archivist, writer, blogger, and teacher. I serve as the Director of the Sider Institute for Anabaptist, Pietist, and Wesleyan Studies and an Adjunct Instructor at Messiah College, and as Assistant Editor of Brethren in Christ History and Life, the journal of the Brethren in Christ Historical Society. I hold degrees from Temple University (M.A., 2012) and Messiah College (B.A., 2009).
As a historian, my research interests include Brethren in Christ Church history, the history of twentieth-century American Evangelicalism, and the history of Anabaptist and Pietist groups in America. I’m interested in work that allows me to bridge the divide between academic historians and the general public. I’m especially eager to use my knowledge of America’s religious history to aid faith communities.
My wife, Katie, and I have been married since 2010. We currently live in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, and attend the Grantham Brethren in Christ Church.
