The Current VTS Merrow Fellow

We currently have a visiting scholar from Sudan here at VTS, supported by the new Merrow Fellowship: Rev. Oliver Duku. He is generously helping some of the students, offering an African perspective on biblical interpretation. Here is a bit of his background:

After earning the M.T.S. degree from Virginia Seminary in 1995, Oliver Duku returned to Sudan to become Principal of Bishop Allison Theological College. This Anglican seminary had to relocate twice during the 1983-2005 war in southern Sudan. Following the Comprehensive Peace Agreement of 2005, funds are now being raised for the return to the College from its place of refuge in Arua, Uganda to to new facilities in Yei, Sudan.
