meet the TTI team

We seek to show the reasonableness and desirability of Christianity by:

 Communicating the brilliance and beauty of Jesus and the gospel in creative and compelling ways.
 Cultivating in our own lives and in the world around us the good, true, and beautiful for the good of all.
 Creating new artifacts, institutions, and cultural spaces where Jesus is seen as brilliant and beautiful.

In short, we hope to inspire, equip, and collaborate with like-minded Christians to re-enchant the world.

Motherhood 

Experience / Investment

Motherhood photography includes maternity, newborn, and family photos. There's nothing I love more than these type of shoots. These are the moments that you'll look back on for the rest of your life. There's nothing more sacred than a mother and father's love for their children. Let me document these fleeting moments for you!

about us

Our mission 

Our initiatives

Along with a renewed interest in religion, an increasingly anti-Christian culture has emerged in the western world. Along with this, the church has grown anti-intellectual and out of touch with the relevancy of Jesus and the gospel to all aspects of contemporary life. As a result the gospel doesn’t get a fair hearing.
Hence, the Christian voice is muted.

Moreover, Christians often find themselves as fragmented as their non-Christian neighbors, unable to penetrate the darkness with light and the disintegrated with salt.
Hence, the Christian conscience is muted.

Finally, by and large, Christians view the world in the same way as everyone else—as everyday, ordinary, or mundane instead of deeply beautiful, mysterious, and sacred.
Hence, the Christian imagination is muted.  

We believe, however, that an authentic missionary encounter with the culture is possible as Christians join with the Holy Spirit and others and (1) embrace God’s call to love him with their minds and seek creative ways to proclaim the goodness, truth, and beauty of Jesus and the gospel (renewing a Christian voice into culture); (2) live fully integrated lives under the banner of Christ (renewing a Christian conscience into culture); (3) see and delight in the world God has made in the same way Jesus sees and delights in the world (renewing the Christian imagination).

The Missional Professor

paul gould 

Most days you can find me reading philosophy. People often refer to me as driven, loving, smart, funny, and goofy. The things I’m most passionate about are the gospel getting a fair hearing in our culture, my family, philosophy, making connections between Jesus and the gospel and all of life—oh, and reading good books, hiking, and living the adventurous life.

I have my PhD from Purdue University and wrote my dissertation on God's relationship to abstract objects.

I’m passionate about the mission of TTI because Jesus is brilliant and beautiful. I want people
to know that. I want people to find their joy and hope and satisfaction in him. Today in culture,
Jesus and Christianity are misunderstood and maligned. Part of that is our fault. I want to help
show others that Christianity is true and exhilarating.

In my free time I read, play with kids, hang out with my wife, run, walk, ride bikes—seek beauty in nature, and camp!


Founder and President


courtney mclean

 I'm the host of Eudo Podcast and Co-Leader of the TTI cohorts.

When I'm not with TTI, I'm probably reading for my PhD seminars at Southwestern or watching an episode of the Office. People often describe me as energetic, encouraging, and joyful! 

Most days you can find me reading (come on Lewis and Austen), working on a good DIY project, handlettering, or having good conversations over a hazelnut latte. 

My favorite places that I've ever traveled are all in the UK. Especially Oxford and St. Andrews, Scotland. All the tea and scones please! 

I'm passionate about the TTI mission because I see the need in my own life and of every person to find true wholeness, purpose, and fulfillment. TTI seeks to put Christ on display, the only One in whom we can find these. TTI seeks to engage the whole person--head, heart, and hands, and to provide resources that reveal the goodness, truth, and beauty of Christ and His Kingdom.

Podcast Host and Cohort Co-Leader

avery earl

I'm an entrepreneur at heart, business owner, student, and dog lover. People often refer to me as happy, dedicated, and outgoing. The things I'm most passionate about are showing the gospel to be reasonable, incorporating beauty into everyday life, and the united between truth and beauty. 

I am currently finishing up my undergrad in humanities and philosophy, while simultaneously beginning my masters degree in philosophy at Southwestern Baptist Theology Seminary in the spring. When I'm not working with TTI you'll find me doing homework, working on my photography business, grading papers, or snuggling my two golden retrievers. 

My job at TTI is over all the things the public sees. I oversee our brand, make sure our content is assessable, and partner with our other team mates to make sure that our content goes live! 

I'm passionate about the TTI mission because Jesus is brilliant and beautiful. I'm passionate about the gospel getting a fair hearing, having a correct view of culture, and showing that the gospel fulfills all of the desires found in the human condition. 

Creative Director

Chris lee

Part of my job here at TTI is overseeing the curation of content published through TTI! Alongside that I partner with Courtney to help organize and lead the cohorts under TTI. 

When I'm not working with TTI you will most likely be able to find me at school. I'm a full-time student at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary pursuing a triple masters (Master of Arts in Philosophy, Master of Arts in Christian Apologetics, and a Master of Theological Studies). So you'll always be able to find me at the library, a local coffee shop, or in nature with a good book in hand! 

I'm passionate about the TTI mission because goodness, truth, and beauty are what all of our hearts desire and I am passionate about showing how all three find their culmination in Jesus Christ. 


Content Coordinator and Cohort Co-Leader

Neil williams

My job here at TTI is to work with video and content production! I help provide content for our video projects and with the articles we publish. 

When I’m not working with TTI, I’m either hanging out with my family or working at Southwestern Seminary as a photographer and videographer. I’m also referred to as “that camera guy” because it’s not often you see me without one. I have a wife, Sarah, a daughter, Jane, and one child on the way. I am also a student at SWBTS in the M.A. in Philosophy program so I spend a lot of time in class and reading/writing papers.

I’m passionate about telling stories, my family, serving the Lord, and helping those who are experiencing poverty. 

I believe that TTI is a light in a world that it overly saturated in negative entertainment and arts. I believe TTI will be a place where Christians can go to better understand the role in which God intended beauty and imagination to play in their lives. These subjects are a passion of mine and I want to help in any way that I can.
