Dr. Steven B. Cowan and his wife Ronda joined us in 2000 from Fayetteville, Arkansas, where Steve had been pastor of Immanuel Baptist Church since 1992, and an adjunct professor at Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, Ouachita Baptist University and a visiting professor at the University of Arkansas.

Born in 1962 in Hattiesburg, Mississippi, Steve became a Christian while attending the Calvary Baptist Church in Hattiesburg. He attended the University of Southern Mississippi majoring in the field of Sociology. Here Steve developed a keen interest in philosophy and apologetics and determined that he would pursue these disciplines on the graduate level.

He has earned his M.A. and Ph.D. in Philosophy from University of Arkansas (dissertation: Divine Sovereignty and Human Responsibility: A Compatabilist Reconciliation), as well as the Master of Divinity degree from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. Steve's teaching focus has been on Philosophy, Philosophy of Religion, Ethics, Theology, Apologetics and World Religions.

Steve edited and contributed to the important new Zondervan book, 5 Views on Apologetics. He has also participated in public debates defending the existence of God and the resurrection of Jesus. He brings to ARC a wonderful combination of high academic standards and pastoral experience. Steve's focus is on teaching and development of our Apologetics Journal (Areopagus Journal) and the Apologetics Institute.
