Dr. Currie began teaching church history at the Center for Urban Ministerial Education (CUME), the Boston campus of Gordon-Conwell, in 1998 and joined the faculty full-time as Director of the Doctor of Ministry Program in 2005. To all of his work, both at Gordon-Conwell’s three campuses and elsewhere, Dr. Currie has brought a passion to nurture thinking Christian leaders. This passion has grown out of 23 years of ordained ministry in the Presbyterian Church (USA), including 15 years as the organizing pastor of a new church development.

Dr. Currie has nurtured Christian leaders through a variety of ministry roles. These roles have ranged from discipling college students and faculty as a staff member and instructor for the Coalition for Christian Outreach to serving as a pastor of several churches in the U.S. and abroad. These churches have included First Presbyterian Church, Greenville, PA; The Anchor Presbyterian Church, Wrightstown, PA; Bethany Presbyterian Church in Brookline, MA; and the Cellardyke and Kilrenny Parish and Crail Parish in Scotland. He also served as the Chair of the New Church Development Committee of the Philadelphia Presbytery and on Presbytery Council.

In addition, Dr. Currie has been involved in cultural and ministry activities relating to China. He co-founded the Chinese for Christ Bible Institute (CCBI) and chaired its board. He has also served as chair of the American International Cultural Exchange Institute (AICEI), which organizes cultural exchanges, scholarships and other programs to foster cultural education between the United States and China. In the summer of 2004, he served on the CCBI/AICEI China Mission Team.

Dr. Currie’s research interests include the history of evangelicalism, particularly in Scotland, South Africa and China; pastoral theology; worship; preaching; spiritual formation, particularly for clergy; mentoring; and discipleship.

Dr. Currie’s personal interests include Steeler football; running; the Aubrey/Maturin and Church of England series of novels; tennis; theater; hunting, particularly with a bow and arrow; cooking; golf; hiking; canoeing; Scottish games; chamber music; and basketball. He also remains connected to his Scottish roots as chaplain for the Clan Currie Society, a nonprofit organization dedicated to preserving the history of the Scottish Currie Clan and providing cultural education regarding Scotland and its history.
