Black, Stephanie

Stephanie’s passion for equipping emerging global church leaders with skills in reading and interpreting the Bible led her to complete a Ph.D. in New Testament Greek in 2000. Since then she’s taught in graduate schools of theology in Ethiopia (2000-08), Kenya (2008-13), and India (2005-present).

From 2007-11 Stephanie served as continental Accreditation Officer for the Association for Christian Theological Education in Africa (ACTEA, an agency of the Association of Evangelicals in Africa), and continues to work with ACTEA on various projects. Stephanie is also Affiliate Associate Professor of New Testament at Fuller Theological Seminary and an ordained Teacher Elder in the Evangelical Presbyterian Church.

Stephanie brings her international experience in theological education to Serge as an itinerant Theological Education Specialist, based in Dublin, Ireland, and travels to serve Serge’s fields of ministry around the world. Her desire is to serve the Kingdom of God by teaching in theological institutions alongside Serge’s church-planting efforts, helping Serge develop and strengthen partnerships in theological education, and inviting and equipping others to participate in theological training in cross-cultural settings.

Stephanie is a Navy kid from Virginia Beach, Va. She attended the University of Virginia and Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, and calls Charlottesville, Va., home. She has two beautiful daughters: Linnea, married to William and living in the Washington D.C. area, and Caroline, married to Will and living in Orlando, Fla.
