Harper is passionate about matters relating to ecology and social justice and how they intersect with technology. As a tech chaplain, Harper’s call is to use technology to help bridge the gaps between people trapped by oppressive social systems and the people who have ideas, means, ministries, and/or programs that are intended to inspire, educate, and empower.

Harper holds a bachelor's degree from DeVry University and a Master of Arts in Practical Theology degree from MTSO.

Methodist Theological School in Ohio prepares leaders of many faith traditions for lives of lasting significance in service to the church and the world. In addition to the Master of Divinity degree, the school offers master’s degrees in counseling, theological studies and practical theology, along with a Doctor of Ministry degree.
