Don (Dongshin) Chang, Ph.D.

Associate Professor, Biblical Studies


Don's years of pastoral ministry come through in his shepherd's heart: he brings thoughtfulness, compassion, and grace to work with him everyday. Don enjoys filling his office with antique collectibles, and sitting around his table over food, good conversation, and laughter. When he's not teaching (which he does a lot of), he enjoys time with his wife and children.
