Trinity Christian College is pleased to announce that Dr. Aaron Kuecker will assume the role of provost on July 1. From 2008-2013, Kuecker served as associate professor of theology and director of education at the College.

“As provost, I look forward to continuing to cultivate Trinity Christian College’s strong faculty in ways that help them flourish,” said Kuecker. “During my time at the College I really grew to the love the Trinity community and its potential, and I am excited to return.”
“We are delighted to welcome Aaron back to Trinity,” said Kurt D. Dykstra, J.D., president of Trinity Christian College. “He is an exceptional academic leader who is well respected by faculty and beloved by students. I have full confidence that Aaron will elevate and expand an already robust academic program.”
Kuecker’s academic work has largely focused on identity formation in the early Christian church, with an emphasis on New Testament studies and Biblical theology. He received his Ph.D. in New Testament studies from the University of St. Andrews in Scotland; his M.Div., from Western Theological Seminary; and his B.A. in political science from Central College. Before earning his Ph.D., Kuecker served as associate pastor and youth pastor at Community Reformed Church in Zeeland, Mich.
