"I am passionate about bringing Christ’s message of grace, peace, truth and human flourishing to all aspects of life and work, in order to promote shalom among the nations."
I currently serve as President and CEO of Global Scholars. I began serving in ministry with Campus Crusade for Christ (now Cru) in 1985, initially ministering to students and then faculty on university campuses in the U.S. In 1999 I founded Cru’s Academic Initiative in order to aid faculty in integrating biblical truth into their research, publishing and teaching. In 2001 I joined InterVarsity Christian Fellowship/USA’s Graduate Student & Faculty Ministries, serving as National Director of Faculty Ministry. I also established the Emerging Scholars Network to help students prepare to serve Christ as university professors. I joined Global Scholars as Executive Vice President in 2010, and was appointed President and CEO in 2014.
I hold a BS in Secondary Education from Miami University, an MA in Philosophy and Ethics for Talbot School of Theology, Biola University (summa cum laude) and a D.Min (Doctor of Ministry) in “Engaging Mind and Culture,” also from Talbot School of Theology, Biola University, where I studied under Dr. J.P. Moreland. I have taught undergraduate and graduate courses in apologetics, ethics and Christian thought, as well as published in professional and ministry journals, contributed to several books and edited several others on these subjects (see my LinkedIn bio).
My wife Lori and I live in the Kansas City area. We have four children — two daughters and two sons. I am passionate about playing, watching and discussing all things football as well as enjoying time with my family, reading, doing home improvement projects and traveling.
"As a natural skeptic, and a science researcher, I am interested in logic and evidence, which is why I am a big fan of Dr. Stan Wallace’s blog. Stan is a great thinker and a trained Christian philosopher. He considers serious, foundational topics, and discusses them deeply. This blog induces us to think, long and hard, about issues of eternal significance. I heartily recommend it!"
-Dr. Phil Bishop, Professor Emeritus, The University of Alabama
