Dr. Gregg A. Okesson is Associate Professor of Leadership and Development.
Before coming to Asbury in July 2011, Dr. Okesson was a faculty member at Scott Theological College/Scott Christian University, Kenya, East Africa for 10 years where he served as Deputy Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs. Prior to this, he was a pastor in Upstate New York, worked in Student Development at Wheaton College, and a church-planter among a Muslim people-group in north-central Tanzania. He and his family have lived in East Africa for the past 13 years.
Gregg has authored numerous articles and has served on the editorial committee for the Africa Journal of Evangelical Theology. He is currently writing a book on ecclesiastical theologies emergent from within African Christianity and is more broadly interested in attending to linkages between theology and global realities, particularly those dealing with poverty, development, power, and multiple modernities.
He is married to Kimberly Okesson and they have two children.
