During the past year, our full-time faculty members have made significant strides in their chosen endeavors. They travel widely, speak at churches, universities, and conferences, and serve in congregations. Here are a few of their most significant achievements this year.

He also continues to minister at the Tye Church of Christ.
Jeff Childers, Professor of Church History, spent 2011 on sabbatical, finishing his four-volume critical edition and translation of the sermons of John Chrysostom preserved in Syriac. He will speak in April at a symposium launching a new Syriac Studies department in the western Turkish city of Mardin. He remains very active at the Highland Church of Christ and speaks widely at other churches.
