Adjuncts Bring Their Expertise to This Year’s Modules
At BJU Seminary, our resident faculty are the backbone of our program. They are well known for their careful biblical scholarship and years of practical ministry experience. But in addition to the teaching of our resident faculty, we are thankful that our new modular program allows us to occasionally bring in a diverse group of adjunct professors to share their expertise on certain subjects. These adjunct professors serve all over the country and the world in a variety of ministry positions and will be a blessing to all students who take module courses both in the fall and in the spring. Check below for a highlight of this year’s adjunct faculty, as well as for a complete list of module courses being offered.
If you haven’t taken a course with BJU Seminary and are interested in taking a module this fall, you may qualify for our limited-time free class offer. Module courses are an excellent way to sharpen your ministry skills while experiencing BJU Seminary first-hand.
