Curriculum Vitae

Dr. Greg Salazar (PhD, University of Cambridge) is Assistant Professor of Historical Theology for the PhD program. Greg is originally from North Carolina and his passion for the Lord and theological study began at The University of North Carolina (Chapel Hill). In 2009, Greg began his MDiv studies at Reformed Theological Seminary (Orlando). His doctoral research focused on the doctrinal, ecclesiological, and pietistic links between puritanism and the post-Reformation English Church in the lead-up to the Westminster Assembly, through the lens of the English clergyman and Westminster Assembly divine Daniel Featley (1582-1645).

Dr. Salazar’s ongoing research interests include: the history and theology of “Old Princeton” (1812-1929); post-Reformation history and theology; the development of Reformed dogmatics; Reformed pietism and “experimental” religion; the historical foundations for the doctrine of inerrancy; the doctrinal development of archetypal and ectypal theology; and the influence of Continental Reformed scholastic divines on English Puritanism.

Over the years, Dr. Salazar has sought to be active in the life of the local church through preaching and teaching. He and his family are grateful to be members of Harvest Orthodox Presbyterian Church. He is pursuing ordination in the Orthodox Presbyterian Church (OPC) and is under care of the Presbytery of Michigan and Ontario. Greg has a particular passion that students would love Reformed experiential theology—believing that that the truths contained in Scripture should, by the power of the Spirit, penetrate our hearts, progressively enabling our minds, hearts, and character to be transformed and submitted to the lordship of Jesus Christ. He is married to Christie and they have three children.

“ And the things that thou hast heard of me among many witnesses, the same commit thou to faithful men, who shall be able to teach others also. ”

2 Timothy 2:2
