About the Contributors
The son of a Mennonite pastor, Professor Regier always knew he would spend his life in ministry. His passion is to minister through art and technology. For more than thirty years he has created and executed innumerable multimedia presentations for Dallas Seminary and has also guided thousands of students in the development of audiovisual support for their ministries. He and his wife Jan consider themselves parents of “two families.” With four grown children (the youngest in high school), they adopted two little girls from China. Recently, Don had the privilege of baptizing the girls.
Dr. Lawson invested seventeen years in pastoral work and Christian education before returning to teach at DTS in 1986. His special concern for Christian education in the developing world has guided his international preaching and teaching schedule to scores of countries around the world. In recent years numerous international Bible colleges and seminaries have requested his help in curriculum design and faculty development. His recent focus has been on developing the Family Ministry, Advanced Academic Ministry, and Chinese cohorts within the Doctor of Educational Ministry Degree program.
