My name is David Smith. My wife calls me David, everyone else calls me “Dave.” I’m the Dean of Wesley Seminary at Indiana Wesleyan University and professor of New Testament and Christian Ministry. For the last 34 years, I have been married to the most wonderful woman I know, Angie. She is a home-maker and a discipler of young women here on the IWU campus. We have two children, Joshua (married to Laura) and Hannah (married to Brian), and a golden retriever named Chloe. I am passionate about the Gospels and Paul’s letters…but also have done extensive study and teaching in the Hebrew Bible. My wife and I have traveled extensively around the world teaching and doing leadership development. Most passionately, we have been working in local Church-based Community Development in Malawi Africa.
