Meet the Faculty

biblical and religious studies - meetthefaculty

Our professors come from a wide variety of denominations and many have hands-on experience in ministry, cross-cultural work, and other forms of Christian service. They are accomplished scholars, speakers and teachers. Many have authored books in their special areas of study. The faculty in our department are caring, committed Christians who want to see their students grow and mature academically, spiritually, and personally. You'll often find them cheering you on in the classroom, on the playing field, on the stage, or in your ministry pursuits.
