With a passion for helping others to think Christianly about their faith, ministry, and daily lives, Sten-Erik also serves as Advisor for Spiritual Formation and Adjunct Professor of Educational Ministries and Leadership at Dallas Theological Seminary, where he earned his ThM in 2012. In his final year of the ThM he was awarded the Rollin Thomas Chafer Award for his work in apologetics as well as the H. A. Ironside Award in Expository Preaching.
Sten-Erik is married to his beautiful wife, Lisa, and they have three amazing daughters. Sten-Erik and Lisa refer to their home in Garland as “Armitage Acres.” There, surrounded by suburbia, you’ll find a koi pond, chickens, dogs, llamas, alpacas, possums, and an ever-threatening family of coyotes. By the way, “Armitage” rhymes with “Age.”
