During the course of his undergraduate studies, he felt called to pursue theological education. He studied Bible at Nyack College in 1999 and soon after enrolled in Alliance Theological Seminary’s Master of Arts program in Old Testament, which he completed in 2003. He subsequently earned two additional master's degrees and a Ph.D. in Hebrew Bible at The Jewish Theological Seminary (New York).
