Veteran professor to assist directing Ph.D. program at BBS

Dr. Kenneth Gardoski, a veteran educator at Baptist Bible Seminary, has been named Assistant Director of Ph.D. Studies.

In the newly created position, Dr. Gardoski will handle various duties for Seminary Dean Dr. Mike Stallard, who remains Director of Ph.D. Studies.

"In his new capacity, Dr. Gardoski will bring a decade of experience teaching theology at master and doctoral levels in addition to an intercultural background as a former missionary to Poland," Dr. Stallard said. "He will handle the day-to-day administrative operations of the Ph.D. program while I continue to recruit students for Ph.D. studies."

Dr. Gardoski is an Associate Professor of Systematic Theology and a BBS alumnus (M.Div., Th.M, 1990). He and his wife, Sharon, live in Clarks Summit, PA, and have three children: Laura, 20; Karis, 18; and Joel, 13. Laura and Karis are both students at BBC.

He received his doctorate from Trinity Evangelical Divinity School and has been a professor at BBS since 2000. He brings almost 30 years of ministry experience as a missionary educator, missionary to Poland for eight years, and educator at BBS.

Dr. Gardoski will assist Ph.D. students as they start the program with initial interviews, entrance exams, and acceptance. He will also see them through to dissertation completion and graduation.

"I am looking forward to being involved in the Ph.D. program at this level as one who is detail-oriented," Dr. Gardoski said. "I also see this as an opportunity to free Dr. Stallard to serve more effectively in his capacity as Dean of the Seminary and overall Director of Ph.D. Studies."
