Before stepping into her role as the Assistant Professor of Homiletics at Duke Divinity School, Dr. Jerusha Neal served as a global ministries missionary to the Fiji Islands through the United Methodist Church, where she taught in the seminary.
“It was a fascinating place to think about what theological education means for the islanders of Fiji, many of whom were attending school in the morning and farming for their livelihood in the afternoon,” Neal said.
Dr. Neal will preach at the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship General Assembly on June 14 in Dallas, Texas. She will also bring an address to the Leadership Institute on June 13.
