In loving memory of Dr. Rob Staples

The NTS Community mourns the loss of Dr. Rob Staples, AB, BD, ThD, Professor of Theology at NTS from 1976-1996. Beginning in 1963, Dr. Staples spent well over three decades teaching at Southern Nazarene University and Nazarene Theological Seminary. Rob was a sage teacher-leader who provided wise counsel to the Church of the Nazarene in the midst of some of her most challenging periods. He often said that if you want to change the Church you must do it from the inside. And generations of students, pastors, missionaries and church leaders would testify that he embodied his theology in that very way. Rob loved Christ’s Church, and he loved the Church of the Nazarene. With unswerving conviction, he embodied in his faith and witness a robust theology of the Church of the Nazarene that is indissolubly connected to the universal Church.

Theology To Go - M15 Journal

NTS has been pleased to participate in a vital way in the M15 Conference.  We have offered over 10 workshop sessions, as well as provided the speaker for one of the conference’s mega‐seminars.
Many of our workshop presenters have shared with us articles, blog pieces and academic papers that they have written and we have put them together in a journal to share with those attending M15, as well as anyone who would like to read them.  This is “Theology To Go” if you will—theology to take with you into your week and into your ministry – whatever setting and context in which you find yourself. We pray these articles will challenge you to think deeply, pray fervently celebrating the past and being hopeful for the future of the Church.
