BS in Practical Theology, Southeastern University
MA in Theological Studies, Liberty University
PhD in Theology (in progress), University of Birmingham (UK)
Starting his academic journey at Southeastern University with a Bachelor of Science in Practical Theology, Professor Aaron Ross gained a deep love for Christ through the fields of theology and ministry. After spending a few years playing worship music across the United States and being a youth pastor, he completed his MA in Theological Studies at Liberty University and became a licensed minister through the Assemblies of God.
Professor Ross is currently working on his PhD through the Centre for Pentecostal & Charismatic Studies at the University of Birmingham in England under Dr. Andrew Davies. His research is primarily concerned with the areas in which the work of N.T. Wright and James D.G. Dunn both intersect and help inform Pentecostal theology, specifically within the realm of soteriology. His present research interests include soteriology, new perspective studies and the theology of technology — all through the lens of the Pentecostal movement.
Currently, he teaches the following courses at SEU: Christ, Culture and the University; Biblical Hermeneutics; Survey of Christian Theology; and the Theology of Salvation, the Church and Eschatology. He is also the senior editor for the Barnett College of Ministry & Theology blog, ECCLESIAM. The blog works to connect current students, alumni, the church and its leaders, and all those who are striving to learn more about our Creator through the practical and theological research from our college’s faculty and students.
