Principal and Academic Dean of ACTS Seminaries Associate Professor of Theology at ACTS Seminaries

Biography

Kent Radant studied at Christian & Missionary Alliance schools in Regina, then moved to the Chicago area where he completed his M.A. and Ph.D. in Christian Thought / Theology at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School. He began teaching in the college and seminary setting in 1990, and moved to B.C. to join ACTS faculty in 1999.

Ken has a variety of scholarly interests, all focusing on the integration of biblical, systematic, and historical theology. His passion is training Christian men and women to do theology, not just talk about it or recite it. That passion is reflected in courses and academic projects which normally include a discussion of practical theological method that can be applied to contemporary issues. At present he is working on a major book project designed to help the reader develop and teach a healthy NT theology of ministry-giftedness.
