REV. DR. ROBERT J DUNCAN JR.
Rev. Dr. Robert J. Duncan, Jr. is described as a postmodern renaissance man who enjoys multi-tasking in multiple disciplines; while teaching himself new skills as they are needed for ‘just in time’ projects. Keeping his finger on the pulse of electronic culture, Dr. Duncan can effectively bridge the human and technological aspects of postmodern culture and relate across generational lines. He has a unique ability to communicate using digital media.
He served as President and Professor of Religion at Bacone College in Muskogee, OK from 2002-2012. He is currently Core Faculty in the Global Online Doctor of Ministry Program at Drew Theological School and has taught in that program since 1999. He was the first graduate of this program, studying under Len Sweet as a Dean’s Fellow. His doctoral project focused on “Transforming Institutional Administration into Institutional Ministry”.
Dr. Duncan’s ministry experiences have included local parish ministry, non-profit management, pastoral counseling, planned giving, and development. He is a retired United Methodist Minister and a current member of the Ministers Council, ABCUSA. Convinced that the Internet is bringing about a new reformation by fulfilling the role of the printing press in the information age, his long-term interest in technology has led him to the bleeding edge of integrating technology and ministry.
He currently serves as the Executive Director of the Sarasota Academy of Christian Counseling Certified Temperament Life Coaching Program. In this role he also offers Free Monthly Videos, Free Monthly Seminars, Ministry Coaching, and Ministry Mentoring to members of the SACC and NCCA.
