Rebecca R. Luman, Ph.D. is Assistant Professor of Formation and Instruction and the Online Curriculum Coordinator.

A graduate of Kentucky Mountain Bible Institute, she attended Wesley Biblical Seminary at its third campus and finished a M.Div. in 1989. Her Ph.D. is in Christian Education from New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary in 2005. She joined the faculty of Wesley Biblical Seminary in 2001.

Her passion as an educator is to equip spiritual leaders to model and teach orthodox Christian faith. She is the generalist on the faculty, teaching Research Techniques for thesis students, Personal Discipleship Formation online, and educational courses for those who know their future vocation is in teaching at the college or seminary level.

Dr Luman taught five years at Mt. Carmel High School, a Christian boarding school in Kentucky, and for some years at a local Christian college. For a decade she was a children's pastor at Lakeshore Congregational Methodist Church and Wesley Chapel. She has written adult Sunday School curriculum for the Congregational Methodist Church and for the Church of the Nazarene. Presently she leads weekly Bible studies for women at Central Mississippi Correctional Facility.

She is married to Karl, whom she met while both were students at Wesley Biblical Seminary. He is a New Testament Professor teaching online at 4 different Christian institutions of higher education—a wonder of technology!

Dr. Luman enjoys reading mystery novels, playing table games, helping friends look for house furnishings at the local flea markets. Her dream is to take up ultra-light flying when she has some spare cash.
