Howard Andersen

Howard Andersen, Ph.D.

Professor Emeritus, Biblical Languages


Howard brings his keen mind in the areas of leadership, business, and education to our team. When not handling these topics he will gladly teach you a lesson in Greek or Hebrew. He will do all this casually leaning back in his chair, his right foot resting on his left knee because Howard is chill. He is also a great family man.
