Unofficial Bio


This is the blog of me, John Frederick. I’m currently a final year Ph.D Candidate in New Testament at the University of St. Andrews in Scotland where I also had the privilege of lecturing New Testament Greek courses from 2011-2013. I’ve been the lecturing instructor of New Testament Greek Online with the Erasmus Academy NYC since 2012, and in the Fall of 2013, I began teaching as an Adjunct Professor of New Testament at the Boston Campus of Gordon Conwell Theological Seminary. I recently finished teaching the course NT 503 “The Life of Jesus” at GCTS.¬† Prior to our move to Scotland, I was a seminarian at Gordon Conwell (M.Div) and a full-time musician, teaching and writing original music, and leading worship at churches. I’m currently the Sunday Evening Worship Leader at Park Street Church in Boston (since Sept. 2013). In addition, this past December (2013) I was ordained as a (transitional) deacon in the Anglican Diocese of New England, a member diocese of the Anglican Church in North America, which is a province-in-formation in the worldwide Anglican Communion, and a member of the Fellowship of Confessing Anglicans. I am the pastor of a new evangelical Anglican church plant called the Anglican Church of the Resurrection which meets for worship Sunday mornings @ 10am, right off of Mass Ave in Boston, Massachusetts. Join us for worship anytime! All are warmly invited. Before moving to Scotland I was Young, Reformed, and Restless, and now, after living with my wife Tara for three years in a small town of the Fife Coast of Scotland with no car, I am 32, more broadly Reformational, and very well rested…and I still love Nintendo, baseball cards, and spaghetti.
