Faculty Profile

Jonathan Morgan

Associate Professor

Religious and Ministerial Studies

Ph.D.; MA

Dr. Jonathan Morgan is an ordained minister in the Wesleyan Church, and historical theologian specializing in the theology of early Christianity. As a scholar-pastor his calling is to equip young adults preparing for ministry to dig their "ministerial reservoirs" more deeply through serious and prayerful engagement with what God has revealed about himself. He strives to train Wesleyan and evangelical pastors to think theologically and read Scripture more thoroughly through being rooted in the wisdom of the long Christian tradition. His teaching and research areas include systematic theology, the doctrine of holiness, Christology, pneumatology, and the Christian view of sexuality and the human body. Jonathan is active as a scholar with conference presentations and publications in numerous theological journals and edited volumes.

Jonathan loves his family. He is married to Christy, and together they have two kids, Caleb and Phoebe. His joys in life also include travel, football (as a former college player), working out, and sipping high-quality coffee while hanging out with students or reading a good book.
