Faculty in Biblical Studies - Fall 2022

Northwest Nazarene University At NNU, you will discover a university with a century-long history of providing a transformational education that helps individuals live into their God-given purpose and NNU's “Here for Good” promise. We believe an education is more than merely acquiring a degree to get a better job; it is more than an intellectual pursuit. At Northwest Nazarene University, we believe that a meaningful life is rooted in timeless values and empowered by a community that embodies these principles for each and every one of our students, staff, and faculty. Together, we realize our potential by committing to a life of service that transforms ourselves, our culture, and the world.

Founded in 1913, Northwest Nazarene University is a comprehensive Christian university with 80 undergraduate areas of study, 18 master's degrees in six different disciplines, five Education Specialists degrees and two doctoral degrees. NNU has more than 2,000 undergraduate and graduate students, 6,000 continuing education students, and more than 10,000 high school students who participate in the University's concurrent credit program. NNU is accredited by the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities (NWCCU), a regional accrediting body recognized by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA).

NNU is situated in a best-of-all-worlds location. Just minutes away from the urban lifestyle of Boise as well as a myriad of outdoor activities, NNU is the place for those who want to be in the thick of things and those who want to get away from it all. From easy access to local ski resorts, mountain hiking, and river rafting to a wide array of cultural opportunities there is something for everyone. NNU has a long and deep association with the Church of the Nazarene, and all University faculty and staff commit themselves to living out their faith in a community shaped by serious scholarship and Christian values.
