Where have they gone & where are they now? 

In our Faculty Updates, we have moved from Biblical’s founding faculty to former faculty.  Thus far, in the former faculty category we heard from Jim Pakala and Robert Peterson and in this post we will hear from Gary Shogren. 

Gary taught at Biblical through most of the 1990’s.  What I remember most about Gary was that he was a NT scholar with a missionary’s heart and a fun loving spirit.  I can still picture Gary laughing in the hallway or in front of a class.  I am still impressed by the fact that Gary left the comfortable context of the US to teach theology in Costa Rica. 

1.  What years did you teach at Biblical? 

I taught at Biblical Seminary from 1990-1998. 

2.  What have you been doing since then? 

We moved the family to Costa Rica, spent a year in language school and have been teaching ever since at Seminario ESEPA, San Jose, Costa Rica. My wife Karen and I both teach in Spanish.

3.  Tell a favorite memory from your Biblical days. 

It’s not so much an anecdote as a wonderful memory: from my very first day teaching at Biblical, my former professors who were still there – Bob Newman, Bill Harding, Bob Vannoy, Tom Taylor – absolutely treated me as their equal, even though I had been their student just a few years earlier.

I have always been impressed with the humble and welcoming spirit of the faculty at Biblical.
