A picture of Justin Bailey

Dr. Justin Bailey

Associate Professor of Theology

I work at the intersection of Christian theology, culture, and ministry. My work as a professor explores the ways that culture shapes the practice of Christian faith, as well as the ways that the Christian faith enables culture care. I am the host of the In All Things podcast, and I write regularly for the online journal. My written work has also appeared in Christianity Today, The Banner, and the Reformed Journal, as well as academic publications such as Christian Scholars Review and the International Journal of Public Theology.

As a theology professor at Dordt, I resonate deeply with Dordt’s task and calling to provide an academically rigorous and culturally engaged education, shaped deeply by the Reformed theological vision. I am an ordained minister in the Christian Reformed Church, and have served as a pastor in Filipino-American, Korean-American, and white-American settings.
