Dr. Dwight Singer has invested in fostering formal theological education in Africa for over three decades. Though now based in the U.S., he served as a full-time faculty member in Nigeria, notably at Jos ECWA Theological Seminary, for 2½ decades. He taught largely biblical studies and hermeneutics from undergraduate to doctoral levels, and occasionally theology and pastoral theology. He also held various administrative offices, including Chaplain, Academic Dean, Deputy Provost, and Acting Provost.
Before departing to Nigeria as a SIM USA missionary, he served the church through pastoral ministries for five years and was employed as an engineer with several large firms immediately after university graduation. Currently, he serves his church home as the elder who oversees the adult education curriculum and the missions ministry team. God’s providence has used all these experiences to equip Dwight for his current position with ACTEA in which he engages in ACTEA accreditation services and networking electronically and virtually. He still loves to conduct in-person ACTEA assignments in Africa where he always feels at home.
He is married to his wife and faithful companion in ministry of over 40 years. The Lord has blessed them with three married children and five grandchildren.
