- CHRISTIAN FAMILY (YTHC214) (MARRIAGE, FAMILY & THE HOME)
Dr. Paul Weaver
I was born into a home with parents who dearly love the Lord. I was only six years old when my mother led me in the sinner’s prayer. As a teenager, I dedicated my life to Him at a Word of Life summer camp, and as a student at the Word of Life Bible Institute, I committed my life to full-time Christian service. It was while I was a student at Appalachian Bible College that I felt the Lord was leading me to be a missionary. I continued my preparation for ministry at Dallas Theological Seminary, where I earned a Master’s Degree in Theology. Through a series of events and the Lord’s leading, I was in Hungary one month after graduating from DTS.
I served with WOL Hungary as a professor of Bible and Theology since September, 2003. For the first five of those years I also served as its Academic Dean. In February, 2009 I became the Bible Institute Director, and in May of 2013, I took on the additional responsibility as Associate Director of Word of Life Hungary. During my time in Hungary, I began my PhD studies in Bible Exposition with Baptist Bible Seminary.
I now serve with WOL International Bible Institutes as the International Faculty Coordinator and Associate Academic Dean. Some of my responsibilities include, servicing the accredited teaching sites, recruiting and vetting WOLBI adjunct faculty, and insuring high standards are being maintained in the classroom. I teach as an adjunct professor on a yearly basis at the Bible Institute locations worldwide, and provide staff training and advice as needed. Additionally I am involved with curriculum evaluation, and the writing of Bible study resources, as well as lead collaborative writing projects.
I have written and contributed to several books and journal articles, all of which can be found on my website, www.PaulDWeaver.com.
My passion is to teach the Word of God and provide others with the resources to study the Bible for themselves. I am privileged to serve as a missionary with Word of Life, because it provides me with the opportunity to use my gifts and passions to minister to others around the world.
