Faculty

The faculty at Bob Jones University Seminary is on a mission to train men and women who have made a life-commitment to fulfill the last command of Christ, the Great Commission. Our goals are to teach students in our master’s and doctoral degree programs how to spread the Gospel of Christ, help new believers become a vital part of the Church, the Body of Christ, and teach growing Christians how to know, obey, and glorify God in every dimension of life.

They are recognized specialists in their teaching fields, having served as missionaries, evangelists, youth pastors, church planters, associate pastors, and senior pastors.

Approximately 25 faculty (resident & adjunct) offer ministry training each year. Our full-time faculty have all earned doctoral degrees while most of our adjunct faculty have earned doctorates. Their cumulative years of ministry experience total over 450, with an average of 20 years per faculty member.
