We recently sat down with Steven Porter, who is finishing up his first semester as a member of the Truett faculty. He joined the faculty this fall to serve as Assistant Professor of Missions and Global Christianity, and teaches courses in the history and theology of Christian mission with special concern for the ways in which the local church relates gospel, culture, and place. Presently he is completing his Th.D. at Duke University with a dissertation on missionary bishop Lesslie Newbigin. To find out more about him, please visit his Truett faculty bio page.
