Rev. Jim West

Professor of Pastoral Theology

Professor West's scholarship and writing skills have gained recognition far beyond the classroom. Systematic Theology and Practical Ministry assume new and deeper dimensions under his instruction. Insights gained from his lectures challenge students to confront today's issues from the Word of God.
