Understanding Biblical Interpretation as a Theological Act

“After I graduated from Gordon, I went on to earn a master’s degree in religion from Duke University,” says Melissa Florer-Bixler ’02. “Following Duke I joined the L’Arche community of Portland, Oregon, and then was the assistant director of the Moreau Center at the University of Portland.

“Now I write and edit from home and spend time with my highly energetic toddler. Gordon’s biblical studies major prepared me to understand biblical interpretation as a theological act. With the foundation I established at Gordon, I am exploring full-time opportunities in ministry that range from ordination in the Mennonite Church to doctoral work in theology of disability.”
