Dr. Gary Steward

Assistant Professor of History
School of Humanities and Sciences

I strive to teach history in such a way that inspires and challenges students to consider historical questions from a distinctly Christian perspective. Teaching history, for me, is an extension of Christian discipleship, since how we understand the past greatly affects how we approach the challenges facing us today.
