About Me

David Rathel Picture New




I received the Master of Divinity and Master of Theology degrees from Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary in Wake Forest, North Carolina. After completing some doctoral work at Southeastern Seminary, I transitioned to St Mary’s Divinity School in the University of St Andrews in order to complete a PhD under the supervision of Dr. Steve Holmes. I presently live in St Andrews with my wife, and I am currently writing my PhD thesis. I am examining John Gill and Andrew Fuller, two Particular Baptist ministers from the eighteenth century.
I served as a Baptist minister in the United States for a total of nine years before moving to Scotland. Since arriving in Scotland, I have ministered to various churches by providing pulpit supply and short-term pastoral care. I also serve as Adjunct Online Professor of Theology and Philosophy for The Baptist College of Florida.

I desire to contribute to both the academy and the local church. Please contact if you have any questions or comments.
