In March 2013 he resigned his position due to theological and practical differences. As an adjunct professor he has taught subjects ranging from intercultural communication to bioethics.

Currently he is a researcher, writer and speaker on the topic of religion and irreligion in America. In January 2014, Dr. Bell began a yearlong journey exploring the limits of theism and the atheist landscape in the United States. He blogs about this experience at Year Without God.
