HOWDY, I'M CLINTON

You clicked here, so I guess you want to know a bit about me. If I had to sum it up, I love to work with ideas.  I want to understand stuff. I want to know how this world works and what's in it.  To that end, I completed seminary training at Biola University and am finishing up my Ph.D. in philosophy at Loyola University Chicago.

I enjoy two things perhaps more than anything else: playing games and having long talks/storytelling with friends.  I'd like to think OTT fits into the second one, and I wholeheartedly invite you to join in the fun.

G'DAY MATE, I'M TONY

I moved across the world from my homeland of Australia to the United States when I was 18. Originally, I came to pursue missionary work through Youth With A Mission, but after that stint I stuck around for the girl. Melissa and I got married and I found myself with an opportunity to serve in vocational ministry, specifically through worship and the creative arts. I've been serving my local congregation as a Worship Pastor for the last 6 years and I enjoy it wholeheartedly.

I'm currently in Seminary through Sioux Falls Seminary and so far seminary has raised more questions than it has answered for me. I am deeply curious about the universe, God and especially the phenomenon of consciousness and what it means to be human. I approach theology and religious inquiry through this lens; if it doesn't increase my capacity for love of God, life, self and other, I am probably not very interested in it.

 

In my free time I love to write, record and produce music, play games, and take long walks in the woods with my wife and dog. I hope our conversations in OTT are helpful in someway to you on your journey and we'd love to hear from you!
