The teaching fellows bring unique gifts, broad experience, and helpful perspective to Ligonier Ministries. They serve Ligonier by helping us remain true to our founding purpose as well as by informing and articulating our future outreach. Dr. R.C. Sproul and the board gathered this team of men to aid in present and future ministry. Trusting God for biblical and theological fidelity (2 Tim. 2:2), we are grateful for this group of gifted teachers.
