About the Speaker, Dr. Christina Hitchcock
Christina S. Hitchcock (PhD, University of Aberdeen) is professor of theology at the University of Sioux Falls in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, where she has taught for more than fifteen years. Her current research focuses on the intersection of theology and culture. Her book, Significance of Singleness, explains why the church needs single people and offers a theology of singleness relevant to all members of the church. Drawing on the examples of three important figures from the history of Christianity, the book helps today's church form a vision of life in the kingdom of God that is as theologically significant for single people as it is for those who are married.
