Jack D. Kinneer
Director of the DMin Program and Adjunct Professor of Biblical Studies 2003-
Dr. Kinneer teaches Elementary Greek and New Testament Exegesis with a passion for students to not only be familiar with Greek grammar, but be able to read the Greek New Testament with a feel for its style and usage. As a young seminary graduate unable to answer the claims of Jehovah's Witnesses on the deity of the Son in the Greek, he set himself on a course to master the language. Today, he has essentially been put on the JW's black list of who not to visit. He also credits his dyslexia as a helpful influence on his shepherding style in teaching and tutoring which keeps students engaged with the ancient language.
Dr. Kinneer also teaches New Testament classes such as Romans and Revelation. He is founder and Scholar in Residence at Echo Hills Christian Study Center in Indian Head, PA, which exists to provide educational services to deepen and enrich the understanding of the Christian faith. He also has been interviewed on behalf of RPTS with media nationally on the veracity of the Bible.
A minister of the Presbyterian Church in America, Dr. Kinneer is the author of How to Grow in Christ, and contributing writer to Order in the Offices: Essays Defining the Roles of Church Offices.
