Ken’s book, Out of the Ashes: Constructive Theology for Those Burned Out on Christianity, was recently published. By looking at Christian beliefs and the Christian way of life in new ways, the book seeks to help readers open themselves to some of the alternatives to the fundamentalist and often oppressive Christianity that is too often assumed to represent all followers of Christ. Ken is pastor of Phoenix Community Church, United Church of Christ. Ken earned his Bachelor’s degree in math at K. He earned a Master’s degree in computer science from Western Michigan University and his Master of Divinity degree from the Chicago Theological Seminary. He studied abroad in Madrid, Spain.
