After 23 years on the mission field with Pioneers, LBC asked Ed Scheuerman (D.Miss. '07) to come and head up their missions program, and to work as coordinator for the intercultural studies major. He is also the chair of the Department of Church & Ministry Leadership.
Ed shares, "My D.Miss. from Biola was a tremendous part of my being prepared for this ministry. The D.Miss. program was a significant part of God’s preparing me for my current ministry. I appreciate the strong commitment to training for both practical and academic settings. One class, in particular, that served in this was the Narrative class taught by Dr. Tom Steffen. Whether church planting on the mission field or teaching in the classroom, the ability to communicate through story is essential. Another professor who greatly assisted me in my journey was Dr. Judy Lingenfelter. I especially appreciated how she guided me in my dissertation research. She allowed me to live out who God created me to be in both my research and my writing."
