Dr. Eunice Irwin joined the E. Stanley Jones School of World Mission and Evangelism faculty in 1994.
Dr. Irwin received her B.A. from Seattle Pacific University, 1972; a M.R.E. and M.A. from Western Conservative Baptist Seminary, 1977; and a Ph.D. from University of Birmingham in the United Kingdom, 1994.
The focus of Dr. Irwin’s cross-cultural mission work has been studying how the message of Jesus Christ is accepted and lived out by Christians in non-Western cultures, then directing Christian leaders in examining their faith and practice in light of the Scriptures. She served as a field missionary for more than 12 years, interning in Irian Jaya (the western half of the island of New Guinea, now incorporated as a part of Indonesia) and later under appointment to the Philippines for 12 years. Her major involvements included responding to folk beliefs within new and existing Christian churches and teaching in theological schools and seminaries.
Dr. Irwin has been a licensed minister of the Christian and Missionary Alliance since 1978. She teaches courses in primal and folk religions, contextual theology, gender missions, issues in global Christianity and a seminar on mission.
