Educate, Explore, and Engage.

These are three things I care about. When I teach, I adore those students who are curious and ready to explore new ideas and engage the world in fresh and encouraging ways. When a good educational environment is created, I learn as much as my students learn. Their curiosity motivates me to become more creative and innovative in how and what I teach. 

Your Patreon membership permits me to take all the contextual expertise I have about of food (wine, chocolate, coffee, cheese, etc.), memory, Bible, and faith out of the classroom and into the "normal" world. Not everyone can travel to the Land of the Bible, nor do people have time to enroll in university courses. People from all walks of life and in all kinds of careers are hungry for a creative presentation of information, and that is exactly what your partnership allows me to do. 

I am crafting an alternative, educational space where all people who are curious are invited into the conversation. I've dreamt of having a huge dining room table where people congregate to contribute ideas, share thoughts, and promote creativity. My coffee table can fit six people, but my virtual table fits so many more than that! Please help me develop a welcoming space where stories are shared and thoughtful ideas are considered.

Along the way, Patreon members receive the exclusive content not found on the Narrative of Place website. This includes behind-the-scenes look at developing and editing the "Context Matters" podcast. You have opportunities to receive sneak-peaks at my writings and hear exclusive interviews with Israeli bus drivers, Bedouin entrepreneurs, and Christian professionals. 

As my Patreon supporter, you have an opportunity to suggest questions for me to ask Israeli and Palestinian friends and have access to their authentic responses. You also get first dibs on all open registrations for educational trips to Israel/Palestine (and Turkey/Greece when I get that one developed!).

You get a front row seat to the building of a new multi-media educational platform that aims to explode open the walls of the classroom and to ignore the prerequisites that prevent people from joining the conversation.

You are my support group. You are my beta testers. You are my partners in this adventure. Let's be curious together and explore where the curiosity takes us!
