I originally received my master’s in Clinical Mental Health Counseling and was actually enrolled in a doctoral program for clinical psychology before I felt called to go into vocational ministry. I am an now enrolled as a seminary student (M.Div) at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School (TEDS) and am an active member in my church. I work in college and young adults ministry at a large state university, which is something that I am very passionate about.
Because I just so happen to be part of that peculiar generation that makes Baby Boomers and GenXers raise their eyebrows and scratch their heads.
This refers to my beliefs as a confessing Christian. To be “confessing” or “confessional” means to adhere and subscribe to certain orthodox doctrines that have been a part of the historic Christian faith over the course of 2,000 years.
Why “confessing millennial”?
Because of the very fact that it seems to be a contradiction in terms. “Confessional” and millennial” don’t seem to fit well together at face value or at first glance. But it is not a contradiction. It is a paradox. A contradiction is made up of two irreconcilable things, while a paradox is only an “apparent contradiction”. In other words, a paradox is something that seems to be a contradiction but really isn’t. And that’s precisely why I (along with millions of other Americans) am a paradox. Because you can apparently be a confessional, orthodox Christian and thoroughly millennial at the same time.

Why does this blog exist?
The Confessing Millennial exists to bridge the gap between millennials and the Church by providing media resources and material, in the hopes of raising up a generation of leaders in apostolic gospel message of Jesus Christ. This includes not only this blog, but the resources shared on the Facebook page and an upcoming podcast.
Who is this blog for?
My hope is to represent millennials to Christians and to represent Christianity to millennials. It is also my hope to be a source of encouragement for millennials desiring to be faithful followers of Jesus Christ in our generation.
