Dr. Jonathan Frazier
Director of Intercultural Studies
Dr. Jonathan Frazier’s journey in higher education began in the urban center of Moscow, Russia while ministering as a missionary in the former Soviet Union—Russia, Belarus and Latvia. As an intercultural educator of more than 20 years, Jonathan served in various administrative and teaching roles in several collegiate-level Bible schools and ministry training centers in the Eurasia region and more recently in universities based in the United States. Jonathan’s background in intercultural ministry and life-long commitment to authentic engagement of culture with the Gospel are foundational to his passion for missionary training that meets culture head on—whether the graduate enters into full‐time ministry or other vocations, their engagement with culture should be informed by sound missiology, empowered by the Holy Spirit, rooted in the Word of God, and marked by an authenticity and commitment that cannot be denied. In addition to his current role at The King’s University, Jonathan is an ordained minister and teaches online courses as an adjunct for other Christian universities.
