AGTS faculty members are more than just scholars—they are Pentecostal believers who are committed to serving the church through scholarship, teaching, on-going ministry in the church and formative relationships with students. We like to say that being a both/and person—committed to both the academy and the church—is a requirement for all AGTS administrators and faculty members. As you get to know them, you will catch their passion for understanding and carrying out ministry in the power of the Spirit.
