B.S., Multnomah Bible College; M.A., Ph.D., Baylor University

Espousing a life of faith and praxis, Glenn Gentry professes philosophy not merely as a profession, but also as a means of investing in the body of Christ and the Kingdom of God. As a four-year missionary in Botswana, Africa and a loving husband and father, Glenn believes that to serve Christ well in life requires the ability to engage with the world judiciously. To this end, he strives to invest in the lives of his students by teaching critical thinking skills and rival conceptions of life. In substance, Glenn believes that grace is that gift and paradox through which the richer reality of God's love is known and made known. By grace we are saved, and by grace we develop into a richer and fuller communion with God and humanity.
