Meet the Faculty

The Faculty at the School of Divinity is more than a collection of instructors. Just as you are invested in your education, our faculty are invested in you. Discover why they chose to teach here and read more about the accomplishments of our diverse faculty.

The School of Divinity models the idea that community need not be homogenous in order to be faithful and fruitful. Our common life is much richer for the differences each of us brings to studies, worship, and ministry goals.

As a University-based divinity school, students can utilize the broader curriculum of Wake Forest University and our joint degree programs for electives and specialized studies. These types of connections enhance conversations and engagement of issues.

The small faculty to student ratio here allows students to bring themselves fully to the learning situation, engaging each other as co-learners, offering insight, and asking questions that deepen our engagement with the subject matter.

We are forming and tending a distinctive culture. What you think matters; what you feel matters; what you do matters, and it matters to more than just yourself. Here you can examine, test, and practice what is on your heart and mind.

What we eat, who we eat with, who doesn’t get enough to eat, and how we treat the soil in which our food is grown are moral questions, and ones that go to the heart of theological education.
