Dr. Greg Lanier Promoted to Associate Professor

(OVIEDO, Fla.) — Reformed Theological Seminary is pleased to announce that Dr. Greg Lanier was promoted to Associate Professor of New Testament in June.

Dr. Greg Lanier has taught at RTS Orlando since 2016. An alum of RTS Charlotte, he also serves as an associate pastor at River Oaks Church in Florida. During his time in Charlotte, he worked as a pastoral intern and as a teaching assistant for Dr. Michael Kruger and Dr. John Oliver, respectively.

Dr. Scott Swain, President of RTS Orlando, shared, “Dr. Lanier has already distinguished himself as one of the seminary’s finest lecturers, capable of covering a profound range of issues with clarity and charity. His prolific pen has further set him apart as one of the most faithful and finest up and coming New Testament scholars in the Reformed and evangelical world. And his pastoral care for our students has earned him deep affection from students and colleagues alike.”

Dr. Lanier received his Ph.D. from the University of Cambridge in England. His research interests include the Synoptic Gospels, the Pauline epistles, and the Septuagint. He teaches New Testament courses about exegesis and interpretation, Greek, and preaching.

“Dr. Greg Lanier has made an immediate and wonderful contribution to the learning community at RTS Orlando,” commented Dr. Michael Allen, Academic Dean of RTS Orlando. “He’s a much-valued teacher, giving nuanced lectures and devoting time to individual care for students. Additionally, he’s proven himself already to be a productive scholar, writing regularly in both academic and popular outlets. He’s modeled commitment to the church also through his work as an associate pastor of a nearby congregation. We are so glad that he’s part of the team and are delighted to honor him with this new rank as Associate Professor.”

Dr. Lanier lives in Oviedo with his wife, Kate, who is an optometrist, and their three daughters.
