About me

After several years of teaching at home and abroad, I would like to contribute at FIT to qualifying the students of different confessional, cultural and national backgrounds for work within and beyond the church in times of global political, social and spiritual insecurity. I spend my free time with my family, which includes my wife (ordained pastor in ministry) and five adult children, with friends or doing sports (racing, running).
