Q&A with Professor Horton

Q. Why are you excited to join the School of Christian Ministries?

I believe there is great potential to see the gospel flood our world and I’m convicted that this current generation of students will lead the charge! Being part of the School of Christian Ministries will allow me opportunities to both educate and learn from them. 

Q. What is your favorite thing to do for fun?

I love going to the Dodgers games with my family!

Q. What is your favorite Bible verse?

1 Thessalonians 2:8 – this passage reminds me of my need to step outside of my comfort zone by engaging with others, sharing both the gospel and my life with them, all the while being motivated by love to do so.
