Dr. Howard Culbertson's Book Published

Beacon Hill Press of Kansas City has newly released the book Discovering Missions written by Dr. Howard Culbertson, Professor, School of Theology and Ministry at Southern Nazarene University and Charles R. Gailey, professor emeritus of missiology at Nazarene Theological Seminary.

According to Beacon Hill Press of Kansas City, Discovering Missions is a foundational textbook that examines the importance of missionary work overseas as well as within one’s community. With perception and relevancy, it supplies understanding and awareness for important terms and practices related to mission work and strengthens one’s calling to serve others and teach them about Christ. Objectives, sidebars, key-word lists, and discussion questions are included in each chapter to enrich the reader’s study and comprehension.

“Dr. Culbertson writes from his significant career as a missionary and as a teacher of missiology. He holds the Garner Chair of Missions at Southern Nazarene University,” said Dr. Hal Cauthron, Chair, School of Theology and Ministry at Southern Nazarene University.

The book offers capable, qualified teaching on the study of missions. It is a valuable tool for seminaries and universities as well as pastors and laypeople seeking to increase their comprehension of missiology and its impact on the Church and the world today.

“This is a very good introductory textbook, and has some very strong endorsements from mission leaders outside and inside the Church of the Nazarene,” said Dr. Hal Cauthron, Chair, School of Theology and Ministry at Southern Nazarene University.

Dr. Culbertson teaches missions at Southern Nazarene University and helps head SNU’s short-term mission trip opportunities program Commission Unto Mexico. He has been heavily involved in church-planting programs in Slovenia, Croatia, and Bulgaria. He is a veteran missionary and has spent 10 years in Italy and 5 years in Haiti. He has also been instrumental in the ministry of helping with the immigrants in Venezuela.
