What is your ministry?
My passion is to share the Gospel and see people come to faith. At my church I organise the children’s programs and other social gatherings.
What do you hope to gain from participating?
By participating in YRM, I hope to become better at applying the Bible and Christian faith to my academic work. This includes (but is not limited to) research, teaching and relationships with students and staff. For most of us work is an important part of life and we need be able to ensure this is part of God’s Kingdom and that Christ can claim our particular field(s). Getting to know other Christian academics in different fields is also valuable, we can share thoughts and ideas. We can pray for each other. Last but not least I hope to grow as a Christian through reading important Christian authors such as John Stott and Alvin Plantinga and many more, and discussing these readings with this Christian academic peer group. this is very important because there are not so many active Christians among the staff at my campus, and it is probably the same for many others in this group.
What is your leadership role?
I am an associate professor of Finance, but also involved in subjects such as sustainability and Fairtrade. I am a member of the University Fairtrade Steering Group. I have been teaching three undergraduate business courses in addition to some lectures in other courses. I have supervised some bachelor theses and I am currently involved in developing a New Sustainability Management master program.
