Primary Faculty

A Special Note About Our Primary Faculty:  As it is true of our admistrative team, our faculty brings to the student the teaching and academic oversight of highly accomplished practitioners and scholars.  They have served as administrators, faculty, ministers, practitioners, authors, writers, and in other areas of service and leadership either in private ministry or with other institutions.  They understand the challenges and issues faced every day by men and women serving in a wide range of ministries.


You will notice that in addition to their other ministry and academic credentials many of our faculty members are also graduates of Master’s.  In some academic circles this may be questioned as being too insular, and that may be true for some colleges and universities.


However, in our case we view this as a distinct advantage.  Since our faculty come to us with an already impressive ministry background, their studies at Master’s are a reflection of an intense desire to be challenged in their knowledge of Biblical disciplines.  


Since this is also true of most of our students, we believe the background mixture of our faculty facilitates both an understanding of, and empathy for our students, who are typically older and already experienced in Christian ministry.  This is ministry education for ministers by ministers!
