Lindell and Kay Browning Join Nazarene Theological Seminary as 365m Coordinators

NTS is pleased to announce that Lindell and Kay Browning are the new program coordinators for 365m. The NTS 365m program allows students to receive credit toward a Master’s degree while serving in a cross-cultural setting. The Brownings will be involved in recruiting new students into the 365m program, mentoring 365m students from application through the completion of the diploma program and maintaining clear communications (between students, mentoring agents in the field and appropriate Academic Offices at NTS).

The Brownings bring a wealth of missionary knowledge and experience to NTS. For the past 37 years, they have served in the Middle East with the Church of the Nazarene. Lindell and Kay greatly impacted the region through their pastoral ministry and by identifying national “indigenous” leaders who could take up the ministry at the local, district and field levels. The Brownings raised their four children, now adults, in Nazareth and Jerusalem. They retired in January 2016 and now reside in Pendleton, Indiana.   

“Our time in the Middle East was often tumultuous and challenging, but always fulfilling and full of God’s presence.”  -– Lindell and Kay Browning

Dr. Carla Sunberg, President of NTS, shares: “Having the Brownings become a part of the NTS team at this time is exciting. Their experience overseas in a very challenging part of the world only enhances their ability to provide leadership to those who are seeking opportunities to serve cross-culturally.”

Lindell is a graduate of Olivet Nazarene University (BA in Religion, 1972) and Nazarene Theological Seminary (MDiv, 1975). Lindell served as Field Strategy Coordinator of the Eastern Mediterranean Field for 25 years.

Kay is a graduate of Olivet Nazarene University (BA in Speech Communication and Education, 1972) and Bethany Nazarene University (MA in Education, 1974). She also received a Certification in English as a Second Language from Trent College in 1996. Kay taught ESL at the EMF Bible College and the Bethlehem Bible College and was also bookkeeper/secretary for the Eastern Mediterranean Field.  

“Nazarene Theological Seminary was a vital part of our preparation for missions.   However, before leaving for the mission field, our cross-cultural experience had only consisted of a few weeks living overseas during summer break from college. During our years as missionaries, we worked with volunteers and short-term missionaries who, just like us, would have benefited from the 365m diploma. We believe in what NTS is doing and are proud to be part of the Seminary family working with the 365m program.” -– Lindell and Kay Browning
