Online (Theology) Faculty

Students who are interested in understanding God’s word often take courses or major in Bible, Ministry, and Theology. Many of these courses of study relate to one another and are closely tied, as it is almost impossible to offer strong, positive ministry without a full understanding of the Bible. By equipping students with a strong, spiritual foundation, Morling strives to provide local and foreign churches with leaders and educators.

The following faculty members work with students who study the Bible, Ministry, and Theology with Morling through our Online program.

If you are interested in learning more about this focus area we invite you to read our bios and contact us with any questions that you may have.
