Dr. Wyndy Corbin-Reuschling

Dr. Wyndy Corbin-Reuschling is a professor of Ethics and Theology at the Ashland University Theological Seminary.

Dr. Corbin Reuschling fosters a true sense of collaborative learning in the classroom. She is dedicated to making sure that theology is not merely an academic exercise but takes into account the lives of real Christians, in real communities, struggling with real issues. Her high energy, love of students, and passion for God's kingdom combine to create a passionate professor who desires real world impact for followers of Jesus.

When questioned about the most profound impacts upon her spiritual life, Dr. Corbin Reuschling is quick to credit her grandmother Edna's influence. She also cites her year abroad in college as a spiritual rebirth. That year was spent at the University of Lancaster in England, where she was involved in a Christian organization on campus, as well as in a local church called St. Thomas. Finally, her time as a missionary in Japan, from 1984-1988, completely reoriented Dr. Corbin Reuschling's understanding of Christian community and God's work in the world.

Dr. Corbin Reuschling is actively involved at her home church, is an avid reader of historical novels, and enjoys forays to art museums and musical performances. She also loves any chance to gather with extended family for a visit. She is a beach aficionado and loves to travel and explore cities with her husband, Mike, who is also a professor at ATS.

Dr. Brenda B. Colijn

Dr. Brenda B. Colijn is a professor of Biblical Interpretation and Theology at the Ashland University Theological Seminary.

From the time she first stepped on campus as a student, Dr. Colijn has felt that being at Ashland Theological Seminary is like "coming home." The atmosphere of ATS has allowed her to integrate her professional life and faith, deepening her own walk with God as she guides others down that same road. In fact, one of the most valuable events in Dr. Colijn's walk with Christ has been the shift from a formulaic evangelical devotional life to a transformative friendship and companionship with Jesus, and this is one thing she hopes to foster in students' lives.

Dr. Colijn is a gifted teacher and a wise leader, and this is evident in her classroom, at church, and in relationships. She has been greatly influenced by the works of Henri Nouwen, C. S. Lewis, and Richard Foster, as well as a personal friendship with Dr. Jerry Flora, who is a professor emeritus at Ashland Theological Seminary. Dr. Colijn has a long list of her own work published in journals, magazines, and books. In particular, her book Images of Salvation in the Testament is a favorite.

Dr. Colijn met her husband, Hendrick, in a prayer group at Cornell University. They now have two grown children and enjoy traveling, especially to Bermuda, England, and Spain. Dr. Colijn's other hobbies include watching soccer, riding her recumbent bike and walking, tackling the occasional crossword puzzle, and listening to classical, Celtic, and contemporary music. She also finds herself drawn to science fiction in all its forms.
