Taylor earned a Ph.D. in theology from the University of St. Andrews with a concentration in theological aesthetics and most recently taught for seven years at Union University in Jackson, Tennessee. In his roles as both a faculty member and administrator of spiritual life initiatives for students, Taylor focuses on enabling students to see how their gifts and passions can be leveraged for greater vocational impact in the kingdom of God. He comes to Trinity excited to facilitate the integration of faith, living, and learning through the strategic work of the Center for Transformational Churches. His scholarly projects center on theological explorations in the visual arts and film as well as creatively applying Dietrich Bonhoeffer’s distinctive vision for discipleship and community in the church.
