Criswell College President Barry Creamer has appointed Dr. Steven Sanders as the college’s new Assistant Professor of New Testament and Greek. Sanders earned a B.S. in Electrical Engineering from Georgia Institute of Technology (2003), as well as a Th.M. in Pastoral Leadership (2007) and Ph.D. in New Testament Studies (2019) from Dallas Theological Seminary. He received the honor of top graduate in all three programs of his educational career.  

Sanders has been an adjunct instructor at Dallas Theological Seminary since 2017 and at Criswell College since 2020. Vice President of Academic Affairs and Professor of Theology Christopher Graham said Sanders would assume his full-time role on August 1. Graham added that Sanders “is perfect for our doctrinal commitments and for our students.”  

Sanders’ research and teaching interests include, but are not limited to, New Testament Exegesis, Homiletics, Philippians, and Ephesians. Sanders and his wife, Danielle, have been married since 2003 and have one daughter, Kate.
