Kettering-Lane to fill Brethren studies position at Bethany Seminary.

Denise Kettering-Lane has been hired as full-time assistant professor of Brethren studies at Bethany Theological Seminary in Richmond, Ind., to begin July 1. She has taught Brethren studies at Bethany in a part-time capacity since 2010, with the majority of her courses in online and weekend-intensive formats.

The Brethren studies position has been expanded to full-time as a result of the seminary’s recent curriculum review. In addition to making a greater number and wider variety of Brethren studies courses possible, this change creates potential for the incorporation of a Brethren focus into new classes across the curriculum. Students who complete additional courses in Brethren studies beyond the required credits also now will be able to name it as an emphasis as part of their degree.

Kettering-Lane holds a bachelor of arts from Ashland University, a master of theological studies from Emory University's Candler School of Theology, and a doctorate in religious studies from the University of Iowa. In addition to her highly regarded teaching, academic advising, and effective use of technology at Bethany over the past three years, she was a teaching assistant in the Department of Religious Studies at the University of Iowa. She has also been assistant archivist at the Brethren Historical Library and Archives at the Church of the Brethren General Offices in Elgin, Ill., and an archival specialist at Nashotah House Theological Seminary.
