Dr. Hauna Ondrey teaches church history at North Park and believes she’s landed in just the right place. As a graduate of North Park University and North Park Theological Seminary, Ondrey knows the campus.
Ondrey focused her doctoral research on early Christian interpretation of the Old Testament prophets. “I am passionate about introducing students to direct, careful, and sustained engagement with the Christian past,” says Ondrey. “Not only to know and value the developmental process of which our current thought and practices are products, but also to cultivate the skill of engaging in sympathetic listening to the ‘other,’ with the goal of understanding.” Ondrey finds this to be a critical capacity for all Christians today, especially Christian leaders.
Ondrey also serves as editor of the Covenant Quarterly, the ministerial journal of the Evangelical Covenant Church, and she welcomes students to become involved with its companion site, Forum.
