New Fellow & Campus Minister Announcement



We are delighted to announce that Dr. Ben Pascut has been appointed to serve as Research Fellow with the Joseph & Alice McKeen Study Center, beginning this fall.

Ben received a PhD in New Testament Studies from University of Cambridge, where he incorporated a theory from the social sciences to the study of Jesus’ divine identity, and a Master of Theology from Dallas Theological Seminary, where he gained several distinguished awards, including the Nathan D. Maier Award in Biblical Exposition and the Anna L. Ayre Award in Teaching.

His contributions to this field are numerous and include notably a research consultation with a highly successful TV documentary series about Jesus on the National Geographic Channel, academic publications in peer-reviewed journals, as well as critical leadership with an international and highly acclaimed anti-trafficking organization.

Above all, Ben’s work spans scholarship in traditional Christianity as well as critical cultural engagement, which makes him well-suited for the fellowship opportunity at our Center. 

Ben writes that he is “thrilled to serve the students, faculty and staff at Bowdoin College and to share in the Center’s mission. Being appointed as a Fellow is both a high honor and a great responsibility. In this role, I will seek to direct others to a Christocentric view of progress, of truth and of all reality (Col 1:17), exploring how our identification with Christ empowers us to expand our knowledge, reshape our world and become the social, moral and intellectual elite of our generation.”

He will be joined in the ministry by his wife Malina and their 9 year old son Mark.

Please join us in praying for and welcoming Ben and his family to the Joseph & Alice McKeen Study Center.
