Professor of Spiritual Formation

Donald Patrick Harris

Dr. Harris earned a doctorate of ministry from Gordon Conwell Theological Seminary. He is a Christian thinker and communicator, church missions consultant and spiritual mentor. After four years as the director of missions at Sherwood Bible Church, Don spent the next 25 years church planting and training church planters in the Czech Republic. His foci are congregational — organizational—health, and Christian leadership development. Others appreciate his creative, contemplative, and collaborative approach to complex issues. Individuals and organizations also apply the insights and experiences Don shares via seminars and workshops, small groups, and—of course—one-to-one.
