Author’s Bio

Thank you for your interest in my blog, my name is John Wiley, and I hope you find the material here informative and useful. In the fall of 2012, I finished my B.A. in Christian Ministries from Piedmont International University with minors in Pastoral Studies, Expanded Bible, and History. In 2014, I also graduated with my M.A. in Biblical Studies at Piedmont. Thereafter, I completed my M.A. in Humanities with a concentration in United States History from Adams State university, where I wrote my thesis, “The Soul of Magic City: Religion in Roanoke, Virginia, 1882-1914.”  I am currently pursuing my Doctor of Ministry degree at Tyndale Theological Seminary. I love teaching, preaching, reading, studying history, philosophy, and theology, watching movies, exploring the world, drinking great coffee, and spending quality time with friends and family. In addition to serving as an associate pastor in youth and music ministries with Colonial Baptist Church, I am also an adjunct professor with Virginia University of Lynchburg and Tyndale Theological Seminary & Biblical Institute.

I am married to my beautiful wife, Cindy, and we are raising our two sons together in a small town outside of Roanoke, Virginia.

  2. Hello !
    God bless your work and study.

    Your new book, “The Other Reformers: A Devotional History of the Anabaptists and Early Baptists (“I Will Build” Biography Series Book 2) (English Edition)” is so wonderful !

  3. Hey John Wiley! Got your book The Other Reformers. I used it for the teens class. Great info about the Baptist reformers who should be included in popular telling of Reformation history. Thanks for your diligence in putting these together.

    • That’s wonderful, Christian! I’m so glad my writing was able to help others learn about the Baptist heritage. If you get the chance, feel free to post a brief review to Amazon as well. God bless!

  4. Thank you for your well clearly written piece on First John and in particular what heresy he was wrestling with. It helped me with a short lesson I am working on 1 John and the heresy of Docetism for Exploring God’s Library. I look forward to reading more. Blessings, James C. Stephens
