PhD Student, Theological Studies

About Dylan

Dylan Parker received his B.A in Biblical and Theological Studies from College of the Ozarks in 2016, where he first developed a passion for academic discipleship. In 2020, he received an M.A. in Christian Studies from Dallas Theological Seminary. He has written on issues of public theology, theological interpretation of Scripture, ecclesial contributions to livable cities, and faith and blue-collar labor. Through his research and writing, Dylan hopes to cultivate theological conversations that are communal, accessible, beautiful, inviting, and compelling, bridging the gap between academics and the public life of the church together.

He and his wife, Jennifer, currently live in Siloam Springs, Arkansas, where they raise their daughters, Sola Evangeline and Wren Ulan.
