Dr. Jeff Cary has been named the Dean of the Alfred and Patricia Smith College of Biblical Studies at Lubbock Christian University.

Dr. Cary has been a professor of theology since 2006 and has served as the interim dean of the college since June of 2019, after former dean Dr. Jesse Long stepped back into full time teaching.

Dr. Cary graduated from LCU back in 1995 and holds a Ph.D. in Theology from Baylor University. He taught in the Department of Biblical Studies from 1999 to 2003 and returned to LCU in 2006.

“It is a tremendous honor to be involved in the Smith College of Biblical Studies with such outstanding colleagues and students. It is also a great honor to step into the role of dean, following the remarkable leadership of Dr. Jesse Long. We all realize we are the recipients of a great tradition that has brought us to this point,” said Dr. Cary.
