My name is Mike Southon. I am a lecturer at Youthworks College, a theological college focussing on training men and women for ministry to youth, children and families in Sydney, Australia. I lecture primarily in theology, New Testament and ethics. I am also the online education co-ordinator, and so oversee the Timothy Partnership, which teaches a Diploma of Theology online.
I studied my Bachelor of Divinity at Moore Theological College, Sydney, with an honours thesis on just war and pacifism. I am currently working on post graduate study (Masters or PHD to be determined) in theology, education, ethics and youth ministry. The working title is ‘A theological analysis of the educational theory of connectivism and its implications on Christian pedagogy, in particular youth ministry practice.’
