His theology thesis combines musicology, theology, and practical musical-liturgical studies.

He plays trombone in bands, orchestras, and other ensembles. At TIU he teaches music history, worship and music, music fundamentals, music appreciation, and world music, supervises church music interns, and is the musical director for the campus musicals. Professor King has directed the Trinity Concert Choir since 2017.
