St. Mary’s Ecumenical Institute celebrates the appointment of Dr. Drew Strait as Assistant Professor of New Testament at Anabaptist Mennonite Biblical Seminary. The AMBS announcement describes what every one of his EI students already knows: Dr. Strait is a masterful teacher, an excellent scholar, and a passionate follower of Jesus.
Arriving in 2013 as a doctoral candidate still completing his dissertation, Strait taught Greek, Orientation to Biblical Studies, and New Testament (13 classes in all), becoming Professor of New Testament (part-time) and receiving the Dunning Distinguished Lecturer award. Students have regularly penned accolades on their course evaluations such as brilliant, wonderful, excellent, fantastic, and exceptional. He will be sorely missed at St. Mary’s Ecumenical Institute, but his legacy will remain: students, colleagues, and alums whose understanding and love of Scripture grew deeper and stronger through Dr. Strait’s teaching.
