Candler Faculty

Candler Faculty

When we asked our students what they love most about studying at Candler they unwaveringly agreed that it was the faculty. In fact, most students agree that the quality of our faculty was one of the two most important factors in their decision to attend Candler, alongside the school's academic reputation.

What makes our faculty so special? It's a combination unique in theological education—they value teaching, scholarship and serving the church.

Great Leaders

On any given Sunday, you’ll find Candler faculty across the city of Atlanta in local parishes as leaders in their congregations, Sunday School teachers, part-time pastors, or simply as members immersed in Christian community. On other days, they’re leading conferences and workshops, delivering lectures, conducting Bible studies, and writing denominational position papers and doctrinal statements to expand knowledge of theology and religion, deepen spiritual life, and strengthen the public witness of the church.
