Dr. Pittman has broad teaching and research interests in biblical studies and pastoral theology. Her experience in ministry has included both seminary teaching and congregational leadership. She has served as Assistant Professor of New Testament Studies at Tainan Theological College and Seminary, Tainan, Taiwan—as a missionary appointed by the Common Global Ministries of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) and the United Church of Christ—and, among other pastoral positions, most recently as Minister of First Christian Church, Tahlequah, Oklahoma. Although she joined the regular full-time faculty July 2005 in the Practice of Ministry, she has served since 2001 as an adjunct member of the faculty in New Testament and Preaching, offering courses such as The Gospel of John, Interpreting the Book of Revelation, Introduction to Preaching, and Preaching the Lectionary.

In addition to numerous sermons in books and journals, Dr. Pittman has published, among other articles, “The Epistolary Tradition: James, 1-3 John, 1-2 Peter, Jude,” in The Chalice Introduction to the New Testament, ed.

Rita Nakashima Brock, et. al., (St. Louis: Chalice Press, 1995). She is currently working on a book titled, Listening to John: An Exercise in Contextual Theology and Spirituality, a book which brings together her experiences in Taiwan and the Bread from Heaven discourse in John.

Dr. Pittman is an ordained minister in the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) and an accredited spiritual director.
