David Haines, Ph.D.


Assistant Professor of Theology and Philosophy

David Haines grew up in a Christian home in Ontario, Canada. After obtaining a B.Th. and serving on a team of pastors at a local Baptist church in Trois-Rivières, QC, David moved with his family to Charlotte, NC, to pursue an M.A. in Philosophy at Southern Evangelical Seminary. David and his family moved back to Québec in 2011 to pursue a Ph.D. in Philosophy at Université Laval under the direction of Thomas De Koninck.

Upon returning to Québec, David founded Association Axiome, an association of French Evangelical scholars. He joined the pastoral team at the recent church plant Église Baptiste Évangélique d’Aujourd’hui and has taught philosophy, theology, apologetics, and world religions in a number of institutions, including Veritas International University, la Faculté de Théologie Evangélique – Acadia University, Davenant Hall, Université de Sherbrooke, and SEMBEQ. David is active in research related to ancient and medieval philosophy, early Reformed theology, C. S. Lewis, Thomism, natural law, and natural theology. He has given conference presentations and published a number of articles and books in these areas.

When David is not researching or teaching, he enjoys all kinds of outdoors activities, including archery, juggling, skateboarding with the kids, or taking long walks in the woods. David’s wife, Laury, is an accomplished artist. They have been married for 16 years and have four very active children.
