Chad Thornhill

Associate Professor, School of Divinity

Director, Doctor of Philosophy in Theology and Apologetics

Dr. Percer grew up near the Mississippi River in Tennessee, where he received a call to the ministry of teaching while attending First Baptist Church. Pursuing that call sent him on an educational journey that includes two master’s degrees and a Ph.D. This journey provided opportunities to minister in a variety of capacities, including youth, children, small groups, and the homeless. Upon completion of his Ph.D., Dr. Percer taught as an adjunct at Baylor University and McLennan Community College in Texas. He teaches a variety of New Testament classes at Liberty. In 2008, he became the director of the Ph.D. in Theology and Apologetics Program. Dr. Percer currently lives in Lynchburg, Va. with his wife and two children.
