Jon Hoglund, Ph.D.



Associate Professor of Theology and Global Studies

Jon Hoglund teaches classes in theology and global studies. He longs to see the global church empowered and equipped for making disciples and establishing healthy churches. He served for thirteen years training ministry leaders in Ukraine and Vietnam before coming to Bethlehem College & Seminary. Between those two assignments, he completed his Ph.D. in systematic theology at Wheaton College. He is the author of Called by Triune Grace (IVP, 2016).

He enjoys both borsch and phở, shashlik and seafood hotpot, and especially the local church around the world. Whether teaching ancient history, the doctrine of God, or contextualization, Professor Hoglund aims to mobilize and mentor men and women for joining in the worldwide task of gospel proclamation.

Professor Hoglund is married to Andrea. They have four children.
