Timothy Yoder

Associate Professor of Theological Studies

BS, Cairn University; MDiv, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School; MA in Philosophy, Marquette University; PhD in Philosophy, Marquette University

Dr. Timothy Yoder has been teaching at various universities, mostly Cairn University and Marquette University, for over 25 years. He has taught a wide variety of courses, primarily Philosophy, Ethics and Apologetics, but also topics like World Religions, Logic, Aesthetics, Philosophy of C. S. Lewis, and Church History. The challenge of teaching feeds his love of learning and reading, as well as his desire to integrate topics and disciplines together in a cohesive Christian worldview. In addition to teaching, Dr. Yoder has served overseas in various capacities. In the 90s, he served as a missionary in Vologda, Russia. He has also ministered and taught in India, France, Ukraine, and Italy. He and his wife, Lisa, enjoy travel and missions, reading and NFL football. They have led numerous student trips to Macedonia together.
