Geoffrey Holsclaw

Affiliate Professor of Theology, and Director of the Master of Arts in Theology and Mission Program

In 2003 Geoff began co-pastoring at Life on the Vine Community Church, a missional church in the Northwest Suburbs of Chicago. In addition to local church pastoring Geoff participates in the regional and nation movement of missional churches through Ecclesia Network and Missio Alliance.

His interests in theology are the intersection of worship, politics, and theology, especially the recent reception of Christianity within continental philosophy. Geoff is hoping to produce short introductions to the traditional themes of theology from the perspective of God’s mission in the world.

Geoff has published several articles on theology, political theology, and political philosophy, has co-authored the popular book Prodigal Christianity: 10 Signposts into the Missional Frontier and Transcending Subjects: Augustine, Hegel, and Theology. You can follow Geoff on his blog, or on Twitter and Facebook (see below).
