Sten-Erik Armitage

Director of Spiritual Formation; Adjunct Professor of Educational Ministries and Leadership

Sten-Erik is passionate about helping others to think Christianly about their faith, ministry, and daily lives. It is this desire that brought him out of a career in human resources and legal compliance to study at Dallas Theological Seminary. While a student at DTS, Sten-Erik served four years in the Department of Spiritual Formation. In his final year of the ThM he was awarded the Rollin Thomas Chafer Award for his work in apologetics as well as the H. A. Ironside Award in Expository Preaching.

Sten-Erik has four amazing daughters and is married to his beautiful wife, Lisa. In addition to his role at the seminary, he is currently pursuing a PhD in Theological Studies. His academic interests include spiritual formation, divine attributes, theological aesthetics, and apologetic method.
