Dr. Lamerson’s teaching philosophy can be summed up in a quotation from William Butler Yeats: “Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire.” He hopes that his teaching will light a fire in students that will cause them to burn with desire to know more about God for the rest of their lives. He uniquely combines over 20 years of academic teaching with over 20 years of pastoral experience.
He has taught in Jamaica, Korea, China, and all over the United States. Dr. Lamerson traveled to Greece in 2017 to help prepare ancient Greek manuscripts of the New Testament for photography by The Center for the Study of New Testament Manuscripts (www.csntm.org).
Outside of the classroom, Dr. Lamerson maintains a regular preaching and teaching schedule in various churches. He was the Sunday morning preaching and teaching pastor during the illness of Dr. D. James Kennedy, from January of 2007 until Easter of 2009.
Dr. Lamerson is married to Cindy and has two grown children, Charity and Josiah, and one granddaughter, Ella Grace. In his free time he enjoys sleight of hand.
