Sean completed his Master of Divinity from Reformed Theological Seminary in Jackson, Mississippi in December of 2014. Upon ordination in May of 2015, Sean began to serve as Westminster’s Associate Pastor. Born and raised along America’s snowbelt in North Kingsville, Ohio, Sean attended Grove City College in Grove City, Pennsylvania, earning his BA in Biblical and Religious Studies. Sean has also served as stated pulpit supply for Pine Ridge Presbyterian Church in Natchez, Mississippi (the oldest Presbyterian church in that state, dating back to 1807), and as an intern to the Senior Minister at First Presbyterian Church in Jackson, Mississippi, serving under both Dr. J. Ligon Duncan and Dr. David Strain. Additionally, he served as an Honors Scholar and Teaching Assistant for the Academic Dean and the Chancellor during his time at RTS. He has also taught at West Africa Reformed Seminary in Gambia.
Sean is pursuing an MTh (Master of Theology) degree with a view toward a PhD in Historical Theology in Scottish Theology and Church History from Edinburgh Theological Seminary and the University of Glasgow. Sean also works with the Blue Ridge Institute for Theological Education (BRITE), serving as the Academic Dean.
Beyond theology, writing, and good literature, Sean is passionate about good coffee and the works of J.S. Bach. He has even been known to dabble on the pipe organ occasionally–preferably when no one is within earshot. He writes every now and again for the cultural journal, Humane Pursuits and Ad Fontes, the journal of the Davenant Institute. Sean and his wife, Sarah, have two sons, Benjamin and Gabriel, and an adorably useless beagle, Max.
