Professor Douglas Wheeler, ThD, PhD
Dr. Douglas Wheeler is president of Kidron Christian College and Seminary, founder and president of Mended Wings Ministry, and senior pastor of The House of Study Church.
Dr. Wheeler is recognized as a seasoned orator of the Word of God. His primary emphasis in ministry is to bring an in-depth understanding of God's love for the believer and His desire to walk in an intimate face-to-face relationship with believers. His secondary purpose is to help establish Bible colleges that understand the importance of the study of God's Word in the original languages. The beautiful word picture language of Hebrew is an instrumental tool in proper understanding of the Word of God.
Since 1988, Dr. Wheeler has founded and/or pastored six churches. The common ingredient in all these congregations is an increase in spiritual growth of those that are a part of his congregation.
In addition to the pastoral ministry, Dr. Wheeler founded Mended Wings Ministries in 1995. Mended Wings Ministry is dedicated to teaching the Hebraic principles for family life.
