Dr. Carl Sanders has been a theology professor at the college and seminary levels since 1999. Previously he served as Chairperson for a Department of Bible and Theology. Dr. Sanders is well liked by his students for his down-to-earth presentation of Bible doctrines. His strengths as a lecturer are in his ability to distill information to their essential elements, as well as offering his good-natured way of fairly explaining differences in theological positions. He has a keen interest in urban ministry and has served for many years in racially diverse urban congregations. His interest in the local church helps him to approach theology in a practical way. He is married to Carla and enjoys spending time with their children and grandchildren.
