Dr. Brent Sandy, formerly of the faculties of Grace College & Seminary and Liberty University, has been waiting on the Lord for his next assignment. He sends along this good news–your prayers for Brent and Cheryl in the year ahead will be appreciated.
Wheaton College has offered me a fulltime position for the 2011-12 school year as graduate professor of New Testament. I interviewed for the position last week, and this week they sent me a contract. It’s a one-year interim position, but hey, I’ll take it! A big factor in their selecting me was the good evaluations from my teaching a course in Greco-Roman backgrounds there last fall.
In addition to courses in the graduate program, I’ll teach a NT course for beginning undergrads. Cheryl and I are unanimous that I should rent a room in Wheaton and drive home [to Winona Lake, Ind.] on the weekends. She’s planning to take a sabbatical from the piano lessons and spend January and February in Wheaton with me! You can be sure that we are rejoicing in God’s provision.
