Greg Moffitt is a Visually Impaired student currently pursuing a PhD in Doctrinal Theology at Concordia Seminary—St. Louis.
He will be graduating in May, 2022. Before starting my PhD studies, He earned an M.A. and a S.T.M (Master of Sacred Theology) from Concordia Theological Seminary in Ft. Wayne. Upon completion of the doctoral degree his plan is to teach. His ideal job is to be a professor at one of our Concordia Universities. Greg is also am a church organist, and he plays the organ at his home church in Virginia when he am home. Greg also occasionally play the chapel services for Concordia Seminary’s daily chapel.
Greg has been a board member of LBW since 2019. He believes that LBW’s ongoing mission to provide blind and visually impaired individual’s access to the Word of God is an indispensable part of the LCMS’s mission of witness, mercy, and life together.
Lastly, Greg’s favorite Bible verse is John 8:12, “once again, Jesus spoke to the people, and said “I am the light of the world; whoever follows me will not walk in darkness but will have the light of life.” This verse was my Confirmation verse. I probably picked it because it says that even though I can’t physically see, that I still have the light of life, which is Jesus. Also, Greg likes this verse because of how it contrasts the light with the darkness; this contrast is an important theme in Johannine literature.
