As a third year ThM student, it is an honor to be nominated for VP of Academic Affairs. After graduating from the University of Tulsa, I served on staff with the Fellowship of Christian Athletes in Oklahoma for five years. Don’t let my several years spent in Oklahoma mislead you. I grew up outside of Austin and have enjoyed being back in Texas while in seminary.
I am a proud aunt of three nieces with a nephew on the way and consider the gift of auntship a high calling. When I am not “playing in the circus” with my nieces, or studying, I can be found working part-time and serving at The Village Church. My internship there has afforded me the incredible opportunity to serve in the Recovery ministry where we care for and counsel those in particular difficult seasons of struggling and suffering. I am most grateful for the opportunity to shepherd our leaders and serve the women in our midst. I also enjoy all things active. A trip to hit golf balls or a good run on Katy Trail does wonders for my soul.
I am grateful and hopeful for the possible opportunity to serve DTS in this capacity!
In my third year in the ThM, I hope to one day be involved in theological education overseas in a capacity that equips and empowers indigenous leaders. Whenever the miraculous happens of getting a break from studies, I enjoy a variety of interests including football (go VIKES), surfing, road trips, figure skating, and investing in relationships.
I have been incredibly honored to serve as your VP of Academic Affairs this last year; it's been a delight and passion to serve as a liaison between the student body and the faculty. Over the last year, I've been able to establish great rapport with the faculty--while I strive to speak grace, I'm not afraid to ask the tough questions on your behalf, whether in the Academic Affairs meetings or in individual meetings with department chairs. I would truly be honored to serve you again next year!
Shane Angland was born in the historic town of Ennis in the west of Ireland. At the age of six he refused to attend Irish dancing lessons because it was ridiculous and instead opted for fishing with his friends on the river Fergus. Shane decided to come to DTS to study for his Th.M. degree after four years as a missionary in Ukraine. While in Ukraine he worked with a Ukrainian Christian organization (CCX) and a small evangelical church in the beautiful city of Kharkov. In 2006 Shane married Katie Brosnan and whisked her away to Ukraine via Paris. Together they had many adventures. In 2008 Shane claimed to have won the tightly contested Ukrainian inter-regional “Settlers of Catan” championship. The results were disputed (mainly by Katie) and no trophy was ever awarded. Shane’s interests are tweed vests, Krispy Kreme doughnuts, and the Filioque controversy. Since coming to American he has gained 20 pounds and made many friends. Shane is a passionate student of historical theology and wants to return to Ireland with Katie to set up a bible college in the west of Ireland to train leaders in Irish Evangelical churches.
I was born and raised in the green pastures of Northern Ireland. I lived a simple life, eating potatoes and playing football (soccer for all you Americans). I’m the middle son of three boys with two loving parents. I was saved as a young lad but it wasn’t until the summer after my 16th birthday that I fully realized the commitment I had made. After finishing high school, I studied Property Investment at the University of Ulster. When I graduated from university, I came to DTS to become better equipped for future ministry. I’m currently in my third year of the Th.M program and on course to graduate in May 2015. This June I will be getting married to my beautiful fiancée Emily, and we are so excited about our future together. I’ve loved being part of the Student Council this past year, organizing both Fall Fest and Spring Fling (details coming soon) with the help of many amazing volunteers. Between studying, serving in the student ministry at Watermark, working at the DTS Book Center, and dating the love of my life, I am loving where the Lord has me right now.
