Springfield, Mo.—November 11, 2009—The Assemblies of God Theological Seminary (AGTS) is proud to announce Dr. Beth Grant as associate professor of intercultural education.
A. Elizabeth "Beth" Grant has served as faculty and guest lecturer in missions and cross-cultural communication in seminaries and universities in India, South Africa, Europe and the United States. She and her husband David, are Assemblies of God (AG) missionaries serving as co-directors of Project Rescue, a ministry to survivors of sex trafficking. As a steering committee member of the Faith Alliance Against Slavery and Trafficking, Dr. Grant developed and co-edited Hands That Heal, an international curriculum to train caregivers of trafficking survivors. She has served as chairperson for the AG's Network for Women in Ministry since 1999. In 2009 she became the first woman elected to the Executive Presbytery of the national Assemblies of God USA.
Grant graduated from AGTS with an M.A. in 1979 and has since earned a Ph.D. from Biola University.
"Dr. Beth Grant provides AGTS with a rare combination of sturdy scholarship and savvy grass-roots experience," said AGTS president Byron D. Klaus. "This kind of 'knowledge on fire' DNA is a significant contribution to the AGTS community."
Because of the flexible format of the AGTS class schedule and the seminary's partnership with Assemblies of God World Missions, Dr. Grant will continue her missions ministry overseas while serving as a faculty member at AGTS.
