Kitchen Table Theology
Where Coffee, Conversation
and Theology Meet
During my 35+ years in ministry, I’ve developed an increasing burden for what I sense to be an expanding amount of biblical illiteracy, not only among those in our churches, but also in the young men and women entering ministry. Conversely, I am hopeful, because I also sense a hunger from people to learn and know biblical truth and the things of God as revealed to us in the Scripture.
1 Timothy 4:16 says “Watch your life and doctrine closely”. In a world where so many things are fighting for our attention, we must first build a solid foundation on sound doctrine. We need to know the truth of the Scriptures so that “we will no longer be infants, tossed back and forth by the waves, and blown here and there by every wind of teaching”. (Ephesians 4:14).
Our Kitchen Table Theology team has developed a list of 100 doctrinal topics, which I, along with my co-host Jen Denton, will examine weekly for 15-20 minutes. My goal is to educate and share biblical truth on the same level as if you and I were sitting at your kitchen table with a Bible and a pot of southern pecan coffee in front of us.
Through this podcast we plan to systematically discover what the Scriptures teach regarding topics such as the Bible, the Trinity, the end times, the doctrines of sin, heaven, hell, salvation, the church, and much more.

When you hear the word “theology”, what pops into your mind? My goal is to educate and share biblical truth on the same level as if you and I were sitting at your kitchen table with a Bible and a pot of southern pecan coffee in front of us. It is my hope to better equip the body of Christ to know God and make Him known.
In this episode, Pastor Jeff shares which translation of the Bible he prefers to use in his study and the reasons why.
As we wrap up Season One on Kitchen Table Theology, we have a little fun in this two-part episode with a New Testament Quiz. Let’s test your New Testament knowledge!
Pastor Jeff suggests a few basic tools that you might want to use on a regular basis as you do your personal Bible study. He recommends a trustworthy and understandable Bible translation, concordance, and commentary.
Let me introduce you to Dr. Dana Goodnough, the lead pastor of Pittsford Community Church in New York, and author of the book, Three Minute Theology. In this episode of Kitchen Table Theology, Dr. Goodnough and I had a great conversation about the state of theology in Christian culture today. We discuss the decrease of theology awareness among Christians and the misconceptions of perceived difficulties in studying theology. Dr. Goodnough has some encouragement for us Kitchen Table Theologians as we move forward, learn more about what the Bible teaches, and how we can live in a way that shows love to our neighbors. You can watch the interview here on my YouTube channel.
