About Dr. Lynn Cohick

I presently serve as Provost/Dean of Denver Seminary in Littleton, Colorado » and will continue through the end of 2020. In January 2021, I will serve as Provost and Dean of Academic Affairs » of Northern Seminary in Lisle, Illinois ». There I will also teach New Testament and lead the development of a MA program in women's studies.

I received my bachelor’s degree from Messiah College in Grantham, PA, and my Ph.D. in New Testament and Christian Origins from the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia, PA. For 18 years I was a professor of New Testament and Biblical Studies at Wheaton College. Before that I also taught at Messiah College (Grantham, PA), and the Nairobi Evangelical Graduate School of Theology (Nairobi, Kenya).

During my days of primarily teaching students and researching projects, I used this advice and offered it to my students as well » from Paul’s letter to the Philippians

I have taught and given lectures around the world. Perhaps the most exciting venue was the Sydney Opera House in Sydney, Australia. I presented the keynote lecture at Speech Night for the Presbyterian Ladies College, Sydney.

I enjoy preaching from the Bible, teaching on matters pertaining to women’s ministry, and exploring issues pertaining to the historical relationship between Jews and Christians.

My preaching venues have been as diverse as traditional church settings in Sydney, Australia;
Dallas, TX; and a Masai mud hut on the Rift Valley near Mai Mahu (Kenya).

I have taught courses at international venues including:

  • Brisbane School of Theology (formerly Crossway Bible College)
    Brisbane, Queensland, Australia

  • Regent College
    Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada

  • Ridley College
    Melbourne, Victoria, Australia


I have also taught intensive courses or given invited lectures at:

  • Campbellsville University
    Campbellsville, KY

  • Palm Beach Atlantic University
    West Palm Beach, FL

  • Eastern University
    St. Davids, PA.

I have traveled to Israel, Greece, Turkey, and Italy on study tours, including leading students on the “Wheaton in the Holy Lands” (Wheaton College; 2007, 2014) program and as part of the Christian Leadership Initiative (2012, 2013), sponsored by the American Jewish Committee and the Shalom Hartman Institute, Jerusalem.
