Mike Naylor is a New Testament professor in the College of Arts and Sciences. Originally from Iowa, Mike has also lived in Chicago, Edinburgh (Scotland), and Maryland. Mike joined the faculty at Columbia International University in 2012 after serving as an adjunct faculty member at Liberty University Online, Mountain State University, and the Evening Bible Institute of Appalachian Bible College.

In terms of teaching interests, he enjoys working with Koine Greek and loves teaching a variety of New Testament books. His doctoral research focused upon Revelation and John’s depiction of Jesus. Mike’s research interests include the historical, cultural, and religious contexts of early Christianity, the use of the Old Testament in the New, and the development and expression of early Christian theology.

He is a member of the Evangelical Theological Society, the Society of Biblical Literature, and the Institute for Biblical Research. Prior to his PhD studies, Mike also served as a youth director, worship leader, and associate pastor. One of his delights in teaching is seeing students discover new insights into the Bible and develop their skills and passion for understanding God’s Word. 

One of Mike’s chief joys in life is the family God has blessed him with. He has been married since 2005 to Trudy, and they share the joy of having three children: Henry, Liza, and Gemma.
