Taylor University is seeking applications and nominations of distinguished candidates for a faculty appointment in the Christian Ministries undergraduate program, with possible additional duties in the Master of Arts in Ministry graduate program. This non-tenure track but continuing position begins in August 2021. Rank and salary are dependent upon qualifications and experience.
An appropriate earned graduate degree (or degree pending) and prior ministry experience are required. A specialization in a particular area of ministry is preferred (e.g., children, youth, urban, camping). Quality teaching with some college/graduate teaching experience and hybrid or online teaching experience are desirable. Candidates should also be ready to testify to their personal experience of salvation in Jesus Christ, affirm their belief in the university’s statement of faith, and agree to abide by and practice other standards listed in the university’s foundational documents.
The appointee will teach courses in the undergraduate Christian Ministries program, with additional teaching in the Master of Arts in Ministry program as an option. Applicants should be ready to teach a variety of classes across the undergraduate and graduate curriculum, with a focus on Spiritual Formation, Leadership Development, Teaching, and Christian Discipleship. Faculty teaching loads are twenty-four hours spread over a 4-1-4 academic calendar year.
The BSCP department consists of thirteen full-time faculty members (3 currently full-time in Christian Ministries, plus adjuncts) and provides instruction in biblical literature, theology, Christian ministry, philosophy, and intercultural studies. Undergraduate majors are offered in biblical literature, Christian ministries, philosophy, youth ministry, and intercultural studies (missions). A Master of Arts in Ministry degree is also run by faculty in the department. Graduates in all programs sometimes pursue additional schooling, though many students enter into (or continue in) church and parachurch vocations immediately upon graduation. The department also contributes significantly to the foundational core curriculum of all undergraduate students.
Taylor University is located in the small town environment of Upland, Indiana, seventy miles north of Indianapolis and fifty miles south of Fort Wayne. There is an additional campus site in Indianapolis for the Master of Arts in Ministry program, with another campus site planned for Fort Wayne. The proximity to metropolitan areas provides numerous benefits, including access to specialized healthcare and cultural and entertainment opportunities including music, theater, art, professional athletics, and commerce.
Inquiries, credentials, a CV, and supporting materials should be addressed to Dr. Tom Jones, Interim Provost, at email@example.com. Likely candidates will be sent an appointment questionnaire for completion and return. All materials will remain confidential. Women and members of minority groups are encouraged to apply. Evaluation of applications will begin immediately and continue until the position is filled.
