Dr. Rick Yohn
I had the privilege of sitting under the teaching of Dr. Howard G. Hendricks for four years. Prof’s love for God’s Word motivated me to become a life-long student and teacher of God’s written revelation to mankind. That commitment has served me well as a pastor, a Dean of Biblical and Theological Studies in a Christian University, a curriculum developer, and an author of seven books and ten Bible studies. It is God’s Word that continually “renews our minds” so that we become conformed to Christ’s image and begin to see life through the eyes of God. My passion is not merely to teach the Scriptures, but also to communicate God’s truth so effectively, that my students experience the work of the Holy Spirit that conforms him/her to the image of Jesus Christ.
