Faculty Search: Professor of Mission and Intercultural Studies
(Posted on 18 February 2018)




The position requires teaching graduate-level courses such as Cross-Cultural and Diversity Competency, Global Outreach, Missions, Evangelism, and World Religions. Normal teaching load is 9 hours a semester, with optional overload teaching (January-term and Summer School) separately compensated. Responsibilities include teaching, research and publication, participation in academic societies, student mentoring, and engagement in standard academic committees. Local church membership and involvement are expected. On-going international ministry (up to one semester per year) is encouraged.



Credentials expected include a seminary degree and earned Ph.D. in Intercultural Studies or related discipline (ABD's will be considered). International Missions experience and/or local church ministry experience is required, along with evidence of scholarly potential and/or history of publication. Effectiveness in facilitating student learning outcomes is foundational. Ordination or licensure for ministry is a plus. Candidates must evidence a vibrant faith, Christian character, and affirm without reservation the seminary's "Faculty Teaching Position" and hold to biblical inerrancy and a premillennial position concerning the return of Christ. Faculty also commit themselves to a Covenant on Professional Ethics. Lifestyle expectations are set forth in Employee and Faculty Handbooks. The successful candidate will undergo a background check.



Rank and salary are dependent on educational credentials, professional experience, and publication history. A full benefits package (including health and life insurance) and allowances for conferences, books, and student mentoring are provided. A stipend will be provided to offset moving expenses. 



Phoenix Seminary, a conservative evangelical inter/multi-denominational graduate School of Theology, is accredited regionally (HLC) and professionally (ATS) and offers the MDIV, MAC, MAM, MABTS, THM, and DMIN degrees. In student formation, the Seminary seeks to balance academic biblical/theological knowledge, intentional character development through mentoring, and ministry skill development through local church experience. Our educational philosophy is reflected in the motto: Scholarship with a Servant's Heart. The school is a good place to work: Collegiality among the faculty is strong, and the institution was designated a "Best Christian Workplace" nine years in a row.



Qualified applicants are invited to submit a letter of application and current CV to Dr. W. Bingham Hunter, Executive Vice President & Provost. These items should be sent as email attachments to: ICSsearch@ps.edu. Minorities are encouraged to apply. The Seminary reserves the right to make the appointment or end the search at any time.
