Meet Jim and Chris Stump
Last April we called for applications for the Content Manager position at BioLogos, and you delivered! Thanks to your interest and recommendations, we received over 70 applications with a wide range and depth of talent. After a long process, BioLogos has finally filled out its editorial team. Jim Stump will serve as our new Content Manager, and his wife Chris Stump will serve as Content Development Coordinator. Emily Ruppel will continue as Web Editor.
Jim is a professor of philosophy at Bethel College in Indiana, with a doctorate in philosophy from Boston University. He brings over 15 years of experience as a scholar, writer, and editor, including editing the recent Blackwell Companion to Science and Christianity. He is also an award-winning teacher at Bethel who has helped many classes of students work through science and faith issues and a warm and effective communicator at evangelical churches. At BioLogos, he will be developing a vision for all BioLogos content development, including choosing themes and recruiting authors for The BioLogos Forum, curating existing content to help visitors find our best material, and pursuing content possibilities such as videos, podcasts, translations, and infographics. Jim will split his time between BioLogos and teaching at Bethel in the coming year.
Chris will join BioLogos part time to fill out the rest of the team. With a master’s degree in education and years of experience teaching college math, she will be well suited to coordinate development of content such as curricula for schools and churches. She brings a good eye for making our web content accessible and appealing to new users, parents, teachers, and other lay audiences.
Jim and Chris are active and highly respected members of their church, and their references affirm not only their education and intellect, but their warmth, wisdom, and commitment to Christ. They are passionate about the harmony of science and Christian faith, and we are so pleased they feel called to join the ministry of BioLogos to communicate that harmony.
