KEDS is pleased to welcome Stephen D. Campbell to its faculty for the upcoming 2016-17 school term. Stephen and wife Beth originate from Texas; but, together with their one-year-old, Caleb, they are currently residing in Durham as Stephen is in the Integrated PhD program of the Department of Theology and Religion at Durham University. Combined with two previously attained Master's degrees in theology, the estimated completion of his PhD is Fall 2019 with research concentrating on the topics of communal memory and the function of Deuteronomy 1–4.

Having a love for the Old Testament and a desire to train pastors how to read, understand and teach the Old Testament in meaningful ways, we look forward to Stephen's fervour for the Old Testament contributing to King's goal of offering innovative theological studies by distance learning.
