Sten-Erik is passionate about helping others to think Christianly about their faith, ministry, and daily lives.

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. After graduating, he served as the Director of Spiritual Formation until 2018. He is now the Senior Pastor of Redeemer Bible Church in Dallas and continues to serve the seminary as professor and faculty adviser to the Spiritual Formation Department. Sten-Erik has four amazing daughters and is married to his beautiful wife, Lisa. In addition to his roles at the seminary and church, he is continuing his writing and research. His academic interests include spiritual formation, divine attributes, theological aesthetics, and apologetic method.
