On Tuesday, March 4, Florida College recognized Mr. Jason Longstreth as its latest tenured professor.

Jason graduated from Florida College Magna Cum Laude with his associate degree in 1992, receiving the Lower-Division Bible Award and the Srygley Award for Excellence in First-Year Greek. He then completed the Advance Diploma in Religious Studies in 1994, graduating Summa Cum Laude, and received the Upper-Division Bible Award and the Presidents Award.

Jason first returned to Florida College in 1997 as an adjunct Bible professor. A year later, he moved to Kentucky, where he spent a combined 10 years preaching the gospel in Louisville and later in Bowling Green.

In 2008 Jason joined the Bible faculty as a full-time professor, and instantly became admired among students, winning three-consecutive Top Rated Lecturing Professor Awards (2010-2013).

He later completed his master’s degree in New Testament Studies at Johnson Bible College in 2009, and his Master of Divinity degree at Amridge University in 2012. His work with Amridge has earned him Who’s Who in American Colleges and Universities distinction, and the Leadership and Human Services Award in 2013. He is currently in the final stages of his Doctor of Ministry degree, also with Amridge, and is on track for completion in summer 2014.

Jason has also been thoroughly involved in various non-academic College endeavors, including sponsor for Psi Beta Gamma, sponsor for the sophomore class and member of the Rules, Welfare and Discipline Committee. He has also spoken several time for the annual Florida College Lectureship, has written several Bible workbooks and has contributed articles to various biblical studies journals.

Florida College is delighted to have Jason Longstreth, along with his wife Stephanie and their five children, Hannah, Kira, Jonathan, Alexander and Olivia, as a part of the Florida College family. We congratulate Jason on his being granted tenure, and for his continued service to the students of Florida College.
