Cliff College PhD Graduate Promoted To Associate Professor


Dr. Jack Jackson, a Cliff College alumnus, has recently been appointed as Associate Professor at The Claremont School of Theology (CST). Dr. Jackson joined the CST faculty in Janurary 2011 as the E. Stanley Jones Assistant Professor of Evangelism, Mission, and Global Methodism.

During his time teaching, Dr. Jackson has influenced the intellectual, spiritual, and professional development of CST students - in particular those preparing for ministry in The United Methodist Church. He has regularly taught courses on United Methodist (UM) History, UM Doctrine, UM polity, Christian Mission and Christian Evangelism. He has also taught Mission in Global Perspectives and a UM General Conference course.

Jackson's contributions are recognized far beyond Claremont. "Already, early in his career as a professor of evangelism, Dr. Jackson is emerging as a leading voice, respected in both church and academy," says Stephen Gunter, Associate Dean for Methodist Studies and Research Professor for Evangelism and Wesleyan Studies at Duke Divinity School.

"Dr. Jack Jackson is a creative scholar. He understands that theology schools have multiple audiences: the church first and foremost and the larger community of scholars as well. He does not step back from claiming his Wesleyan identity as an evangelical, and this marks him as different from most others who would be willing to claim an evangelical identity."

All at Cliff College wish Dr. Jackson the best and we invite you all in joining with us in praying for him as he steps into this new role.
