Dr. Bundrick will also serve as dean of the School of Theology and Church Ministries (STCM) of EU, which will include all undergraduate offerings in Bible/theology, church ministries, and intercultural studies/global missions, while AGTS will provide all graduate offerings in those areas of study.


LimDr. Bundrick replaces Dr. Steve Lim, who has served since 2007 and is returning to the faculty as professor of leadership and ministry.
