With a background in the fields of ancient history and classical Greek I have a particular interest in how New Testament texts functioned in the ancient Greek and Roman world. In my thesis project I investigate how texts were orally delivered in antiquity and what that implies when it comes to the performance of New Testament writings, the Gospel of John in particular.

I was first introduced to the art of oral interpretation during my undergraduate studies at Cedarville University. At some point it 'just clicked' for me, that if I approached Scripture as a performer, seeking to understand the perspectives of the narrator, characters or audience, I could gain new insights into the text. I knew that part of my calling would be to bring the Bible to life through the art of dramatic storytelling. 

I founded Soul Hope Ministries in 2016 with the goal of helping people connect to God's Word through Scripture Performance. Through the various platforms of my ministry I endeavor to provide opportunities for religious spectators to become active participants who mentally and emotionally engage with Scripture.

Soul Hope Ministries has four distinct platforms. They are: Scripture Presentations, Women's Ministry, Youth Drama and Scripture Videos.

  • Using conversation analysis as a tool to interpret literary texts, especially the Hebrew Bible/Old Testament.
  • Using the Parry-Lord approach to oral traditions to understand the Bible
  • Using text criticism as a control for understanding the editorial history of biblical texts, especially in the  Deuteronomic History (Deuteronomy - Kings).

I came to performance criticism by way of Scripture memorization. After combining visual mnemonics like the loci technique with the more contemporary review technique of spaced repetition, I discovered a whole new (old) kind of mnemonic -- orality! I'm fascinated by the current rediscovery of the orality of scripture, and without Marcel Jousse's "recititave" style of trying to find the old poetic, verse style of the Gospels, I doubt my memorization could have gotten very far. As it is, I've memorized the Gospel of Mark, and can identify any verse by its chapter and number. I'm excited to learn more from other memorizers, and the addititional insights from those who perform.

I'm interested in the interaction of orality and literacy in the gospel of Mark.  David Rhoads stunning performance of the gospel (among other things) convinces me of the importance of understanding Mark as oral performance.  At the same time, my own work on Markan inter- and intratextuality (among other things) convinces me that the text is very intricately scripted, with hardly a word left to chance.  (See Kurt Queller, "'Stretch out your hand': Echo and metalepsis in Mark's Sabbath healing controversy," JBL, Dec. 2010.)  I am also interested in being apprised of particular performances recorded in electronic form, as these become available.

Recently, Dr. Rhoads presented a workshop on preaching the Gospel of Mark Monday, Nov. 10 at the McCormick Seminary's first annual Brawley Lectures.  He focused on the experience of the Gospel as an aural event; talking about the power of the Scripture performed, leading participants in some memorization and performance of the gospel themselves and even treating the audience to his own performance of the first 15 minutes of the gospel.
