Dr. Gilmore will be teaching our adult auditorium class Sunday-Tuesday. He is a Professor of Bible and of Philosophy. He is a graduate of Freed-Hardeman College (A.A. in Bible); David Lipscomb College (B.A. in Biblical languages); Harding Graduate School of Religion (M.A. in apologetics); and the University of Tennessee (Ph.D. in philosophy). He was selected as a Distinguished Professor of Bible and Interdisciplinary Studies in 2001.

Alongside his work at FHU, he has also served as an evangelist for many years in the Jackson, Tennessee area. He has participated in several debates about the existence of God and the problem of suffering. 

There are very few people amongst the Churches of Christ who come with his credentials and experience. 


Nick Rice

Nick will teach our combined Middle School and High School class. Nick served as a localized missionary on the Navajo Indian Reservation in Kayenta, Arizona for several years with his wife Heidi. He currently lives in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania where he serves as a pulpit minister for a local Church of Christ.

He stays connected with the work on the reservation through the Roots Mission Program that equips missionaries to succeed in Native American environments. His experience will bring a new and much-needed perspective for our young people and we strongly encourage you to bring them.
