Rick Bartlett, D.Min, M.Div

Director of Theological Education / Assistant Professor of Ministry

My life goal is to move people forward intellectually and spiritually. I’ve been able to work at this through a variety of opportunities: youthworker, camp director, college professor, dean of students, missionary, program director, pastor. I love seeing people grow in their thinking and their walk with God.

Each of these experiences has provided opportunities for me to grow as a person and to share with others in significant ways. When I look back I am encouraged and grateful to have had such a varied life thus far.

I’m excited about working at Tabor and to create an online MA in Entrepreneurial Ministry Leadership.
