Dr. Piotrowski’s goal is to make explicit the manifold glories of God in the gospel of Jesus Christ for the good of the church and the world.

Dr. Piotrowski believes that the Bible contains a unified metanarrative that can be brought to bear on the questions that postmoderns are asking. Courses he teaches include Hermeneutics, New Testament Survey I & II, Systematic Theology I, II & III, Theology of Culture, Apologetics, Greek and Hebrew. Dr. Piotrowski also has a passion for cultural apologetics—the engagement with long-standing cultural and social trends that bear on the broad perception of the plausibility of the gospel. The majority of his work has been done through the Fox Valley Theological Society (, of which he is a cofounder. His wife, Cheryl, and their two sons, Silas and Andreas, are excited to participate in what the Lord is doing through Crossroads!
