Todd Mangum received the John F. Walvoord Award for Outstanding Work in Eschatology from Dallas Theological Seminary where he received his PhD in 2001. Dr. Mangum’s first book, The Dispensational-Covenantal Rift (Waynesboro, GA: Paternoster, 2007), is widely acclaimed as providing a definitive history on the debate between dispensationalists and covenant theologians. He has also written numerous articles seeking to repair breaches among various segments of Bible-believing Christianity, and advancing a generously orthodox, missional approach to theology and ministry in the postmodern, post-Christian context.

Dr. Mangum is ordained by the Southern Baptist Convention and he serves frequently as pulpit supply in several area churches; he is also an active churchman at Grace Bible Church, Souderton. Todd and his wife, Linda, reside in Souderton, PA, as do their three sons and one daughter-in-law.

What does it mean to build a church that is missional?
