Managing Editor, Eleutheria: The Graduate Student Journal of Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary, 2013-2016. 

During my tenure as managing editor, Eleutheria has been accepted to be cataloged by the ATLA Religion Database, which is, “the premier index to journal articles, book reviews, and collections of essays in all fields of religion…Journals are selected for inclusion according to their scholarly merit and scope. The fact that many publishers solicit the inclusion of their journals in ATLA RDB is indicative of the stature it has achieved in the community of religion scholars.”
