Erin Crider

Adjunct Professor of Biblical Studies

Email: [email protected]
First Year at Gordon-Conwell: 2019
Expertise: Language, Ecclesiology, Church Planting

Erin completed her M.Div. at Gordon-Conwell while teaching high school full-time. She had always been interested in learning languages, enjoying a good story, and finding connections between history and current culture.  As a teacher, she also developed an ability to explain complicated ideas clearly.  Through the M.Div., Erin came to understand how all of these gifts and passions could bless churches and minister to others.

After completing her M.Div., Erin began full-time graduate study at Oxford University (Wycliffe Hall).  During these studies, she became intrigued with ecclesiology and church planting, which have become the focus of her PhD research (University of Aberdeen).  Her concern for students, who are always close to her heart, led her to student missions in the UK and in Belgium.  She has been invited to speak on apologetic and evangelistic topics in Belgium and to preach in churches across the UK.

Erin is a longtime member of Chets Creek Church, a church plant that shares her commitment to mission and church planting.  In her spare time, she enjoys cooking, photography, and watching UF football.  She currently lives in Jacksonville, Florida, near family and sunny beaches.
