My name is Verdell. I’m a Washington, DC resident from the Jersey Shore. I’ve dedicated my life to thinking about Christianity in ways that promote life and health. To that end, I’ve obtained an Master of Divinity from Howard University, a Master of Theological Study from Wesley Theological Seminary, and I’m pursuing my doctorate at Howard University in Communications.
My Christian faith has been very important to me, every since I decided to take hold of my own Christian practice in the fall of 2002. Like many of my readers, my life and faith has been through many different transformations. Hopefully the combination of my education and experiences can help someone else along the way.
I’m also a licensed minister in the United Church of Christ. I’ve done extensive work in a number of Christian contexts, including preaching and teaching.
