Dr. Jon Huntzinger
Dean of The King’s Seminary, Distinguished Professor of Bible and Ministry


Jon Huntzinger (Ph.D. Fuller Theological Seminary) grew up in a military chaplain’s family and moved often during those years. He has read too many books on Abraham Lincoln and is fascinated with the color orange. He and his wife Penney have been married for 39 years. He loves reading, thinking about, and listening to the voice of God’s Spirit in Scripture, which is a good thing since he is professor of Bible and Ministry at TKU and Dean of The King’s Seminary. He worked as an editor on the Spirit-Filled Life Study Bible (Thomas Nelson) and as contributor to The Fresh Start Bible (Gateway Press). He has written a commentary on the Gospel of John with Thomas Nelson as well as Christmas devotional, A New Color for Christmas (Gateway Press).
