John C. Dyer

Dean of Enrollment Services and Educational Technology; Adjunct Professor in Media Arts and Worship

BS, Texas A&M, 2000; ThM, Dallas Theological Seminary, 2008; PhD Candidate, Durham University

Channeling Eric Liddell, John likes to say, “When I code, I can feel God’s pleasure.” This desire to glorify God by showing how our creativity is an important aspect of our role as image bearers, drives John’s work and teaching. A former youth pastor, he enjoys working with students to see how the biblical story brings insight and clarity to the ideas found in science, sociology, and culture. John is married to Amber, a literature and philosophy professor and has two lovely children.
