Madueme is currently a PhD candidate in theological studies at TEDS, working under Kevin Vanhoozer. He is also a member of the Evangelical Theological Society.

Dr. Madueme’s research interests are primarily in systematic theology, science and theology, and bioethics. His dissertation explores the doctrine of sin and recent attempts to revise it in light of theistic evolution and modern biological sensibilities. He serves as an adjunct professor at Trinity Graduate School, and he has also taught at North Park University in Chicago, Illinois. Some of his recent articles have been published in the Journal of Theological Interpretation, Theological Education, American Journal of Bioethics, Mayo Clinic Proceedings, and the American Medical Association’s online journal Virtual Mentor. Madueme is presently on the editorial board of Trinity Journal and he is a book review editor for the journal Themelios.

He preaches regularly and serves once a month pastorally at an assisted care facility.  Dr. Madueme lives with his wife, Shelley, in Libertyville, Illinois.

The Henry Center is thrilled to announce this good news.  Dr. Madueme brings a rich blend of theological expertise, ministerial experience, and administrative excellence to the Center.  Please join the TEDS faculty and staff in praying for Dr. Madueme’s tenure as Managing Director under Director Douglas Sweeney.
