Guest Faculty

Once PTS commences full-time resident training, it is planned that guest faculty from the following list and others not listed below will serve as a pool of guest faculty members called upon to teach. By design, the teaching will be provided by spiritually gifted preachers, with or without accredited degrees, but having many years of pastoral experience, and by professional medical and business persons who are actively involved in the practice of Christian ethics in their daily lives.
