Dr. Jon Huntzinger

Dean of The King’s Seminary


I’ve been married to Penney for 35 years and blessed with a grown son, daughter, and son-in-law. I was raised in a military chaplain’s family and moved around extensively during my school-aged years. I have read too many books about Abraham Lincoln and have a fascination with the color orange. I’m a founding faculty of The King’s and have been honored to know so many good and gifted men and women at TKU over all this time.
