Mr. Steve Jeck
LECTURER OF CHRISTIAN AND CLASSICAL STUDIES; DIRECTOR OF DISTANCE EDUCATION
Appalachian State University, B.S.; Knox Theological Seminary, M.A.; Faulkner University, PhD (in progress).
Mr. Jeck embraces a traditional Christian and Classical approach to education believing that the teaching and training that shaped Cicero, Shakespeare, and C. S. Lewis is a sound foundation on which to build.
As we ponder Augustine’s maxim that all truth is God’s truth (De Doctrina Christiana), we begin to appreciate the manifold ways in which God has sovereignly directed human pens to accomplish his good purposes.
Prior to earning his master’s degree from Knox Theological Seminary, Steve taught 15 years in the public school system and worked 10 years in the financial and fitness industries.
As a professional athlete in the Scottish Highland Games, Steve began researching the global custom of stone lifting, an ancient athletic activity that often serves as a rite of passage, athletic competition, or celebration of cultural heritage.
He has subsequently published two books and over 30 articles on the literary and spiritual aspects of strength in the international journal,MILO.
Steve and his wife Catherine love reading, traveling, and many forms of athletics.
