Dr. Josh Bleeker serves as professor and dean at the DTS Washington DC campus. His passion for God’s Word and love for DTS come together and result in “the best job in the world.” He humbly aims to lead by example and guide the residents of the District-Maryland-Virginia (DMV) area toward the completion of multiple professional degree programs. Josh’s heart for God’s people and unique philosophy of leadership provide an anchor for the expanding campus and a platform to help students put into action what it means to teach truth and love well.
After serving as Director of Admissions from 2007–2014, Dr. Bleeker moved to Manassas, Virginia, becoming Dean of DTS-Washington, DC. From 2014-2019, Bleeker watched the grace of God work in remarkable ways to strengthen the DTS-DC campus and firmly establish DTS’s presence in the nation’s capital. Dr. Bleeker has published in Books and Culture and Fathom magazine (online editions), and Bibliotheca Sacra. His wife, Eva (MACE, MAMC; 2008), graduated in 2017 from Columbia University (Manhattan, New York) with an MS in Narrative Medicine, is a Board Certified Chaplain, and teaches pastoral care and chaplaincy at Denver Seminary. The Bleekers love hiking, hosting friends for homemade meals, and marveling at the irrepressible joy of their dog, Ransom Ruth.
