Ted, a second-career pastor, began his journey to ministry with a simple question, "have you ever thought of becoming a college chaplain?" A love for college students and a desire to encourage spiritual growth and societal change through religion led Ted to become a United Methodist pastor. Coming to Reinhardt combines both his previous career in higher education and his current experience as a pastor, fulfilling that initial question.
Under his leadership, campus ministry seeks to grow students into servant leaders and disciples of Jesus Christ who transform the world. Those locales where Reinhardt graduates live should be better because they have citizens who care enough, who love Jesus enough, to give of their time, their money, and their efforts to the least, the lost, and the hurting. This is what characterizes not only a servant leader and a disciple, but it reflects God's desire that, through discipleship and servant leadership, the world look more and more like heaven.
Ted loves the outdoors, running, and reading. He lives in Cartersville with his wife, Dana, a middle school teacher, and his two sons: Jackson and Carter. He received a Master of Divinity from Emory University's Candler School of Theology, a Master of Education in Counseling Psychology and Higher Education from James Madison University, and a Bachelor of Arts in History from Berry College. He has previously served as Associate Pastor at Vineville United Methodist Church, Pastor of the Baldwin County Circuit, Coordinator for New Student Programs at Mercer University, and Residence Life and Judicial Coordinator at the University of West Georgia.
