R. Todd Mangum, PhD

Lester and Kay Clemens Professor of Missional Theology, Director of ThM Program


Todd Mangum received the John F. Walvoord Award for Outstanding Work in Eschatology from Dallas Theological Seminary where he received his PhD in 2001. Dr. Mangum’s first book, The Dispensational-Covenantal Rift (Waynesboro, GA: Paternoster, 2007), is widely acclaimed as providing a definitive history on the debate between dispensationalists and covenant theologians. He has also written numerous articles seeking to repair breaches among various segments of Bible-believing Christianity, and advancing a generously orthodox, missional approach to theology and ministry in the postmodern, post-Christian context.

Dr. Mangum is ordained by the Southern Baptist Convention and he serves frequently as pulpit supply in several area churches; he is also an active churchman at Grace Bible Church, Souderton. Todd and his wife, Linda, reside in Souderton, PA, as do their three sons and one daughter-in-law.
