ABOUT

I am a sociologist of religion.

My main research interests include religion in Canada, Christianity, congregations, religious nones, and millennials.

My academic interests developed as an undergraduate student at Nazarene University College. I obtained my MA and PhD at the University of Waterloo before heading to Ambrose University (Calgary, Alberta) in 2008 where I currently serve as Professor of Sociology and Director of the Flourishing Congregations Institute.



I am married to Helen and we have a dog, Shadow. I am an avid sports fan, and a drummer, and I enjoy reading biographies, traveling, and exercising.
