Meet the Newest World Missions and Intercultural Studies Professor
DTS is proud to announce the faculty appointment of Dr. Rodney Orr to the WMIS department. Dr. Orr earned his Th.M. from DTS in 1990 and completed his Ph.D. at the University of Edinburgh, Scotland. He has served as an officer in the U.S. Air Force, director of urban ministry with Campus Crusade for Christ, and lecturer in theology at the Nairobi Int'l School of Theology in Kenya. He also spent eleven years in Zimbabwe building a graduate school called the Africa Leadership and Management Academy (ALMA). ALMA’s mission is to develop leaders of integrity who will impact Africa and the world for Christ.
Dr. Orr and his wife, Cortina, have a daughter and a son. Stateside, his ministry has been focused on sharing the gospel with graduate students at Yale University and United Nations diplomats in New York City.
“My wife and I feel God calling us to mobilize missionaries for His service.” Dr. Orr says, “We believe that DTS will be a great place to do that.”
Dr. Orr will begin teaching WMIS courses beginning this fall. Some of his courses include Dynamics of Missionary Development, Ministry in African Contexts, Ministry in Multicultural America, and Cross-cultural Apologetics and Evangelism.
The DTS community is glad to welcome our newest professor. Please pray for him and his family as they transition to life in the Dallas area.
