As assistant professor of theology and ethics, Dr. Nathan Willowby teaches courses for both undergraduate and seminary students at Anderson University in the areas of ethics and theology as well as introduction to the Bible.
After earning a bachelor’s degree in Bible and religion and business administration at AU, he spent one year studying at the School of Theology before eventually earning a master of divinity degree from Duke Divinity School and a Ph.D. in theology and ethics at Marquette University, where he wrote on the intersection of holiness, scripture, and political theology. Prior to coming to AU, Willowby served as pastor of Crossroads Church of God in Milwaukee, Wisconsin for seven years. He was active in statewide unity services and was the president of the Wisconsin Assembly of the Church of God from 2013-2016.
In his courses, Willowby seeks to enable students to consider the essential doctrinal and ethical texts and doctrines, but also invites students to consider the ways that the Christian claim that Jesus is Lord has sweeping implications for all aspects of personal and corporate life. A child of the church, Willowby has served Church of God congregations as janitor, youth counselor, sound technician, Sunday School teacher, camp meeting groundskeeper, pastoral intern, softball ringer, and is pleased now to serve in the ministry of higher education.
Willowby has served at Anderson University since 2016.
