Thank you, Lord! One of the requirements for our Ph.D. program is the development of a portfolio that includes a display of scholarship ability. This requirement could be satisfied in two ways. The first was a presentation at an academic peer-reviewed conference. I completed this option in April 2018, at the McDonough Leadership Conference. The presentation was on “Community Collaboration and Transformation.”
The second option to complete the academic requirement was to have an article published in a scholarly peer-reviewed journal. Usually meaning that scholars in a discipline read articles in a blind test where they do not know the author and progressively come to a consensus on what pieces to accept. To make sure I had more chances of meeting the academic requirement. I also submitted to a few journals. I am thankful to say that I had an article published. The Journal of Biblical Perspectives in Leadership (JBPL) out of Regent University has published my article on “Steward Leadership and Paul.” Out of 45 total submissions, only 23 articles were accepted.
You can find the journal and my article by using the following link and scrolling through the abstracts.
