ENC welcomes the addition of a few new professors for the 2014 school year. The new faculty consists of professors in a multitude of departments, including Religion and Philosophy, Physics and Engineering, and LTCA (Language, Theater, and Communication Arts).

These new professors have diverse backgrounds that they bring to enrich the ENC community.

Dr. Rev. David Restrick, teaching introductory religion classes and World Religions, received his ThD from Boston University School of Theology in Church History and the Missions. He has done missionary work in Mozambique at the Seminario Nazareno in 1985 as a speaker, mentor consultant, Academic Dean, and professor. He received an award of Educator of the year in Africa in 1992 after helping in the U.S. Peace Corps in Swaziland.

Dr. Lisa Morrison teaches many of the general education classes, including East Meets West, Living Issues, and Christian Tradition, as well as a pastoral leadership class. She received a ThM in preaching at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary. She has also worked alongside ENC’s Adult & Graduate Studies and Communications Arts departments.

This semester, Dr. Jill Macko teaches Modern Physics, Electromagnetic Theory, and General Physics I and its lab component. She specializes in the science of solar energy and nanotechnology, has published a number of journals on the topic, and has taught at MIT.

Rev. Julie Best will soon finish her Doctorate of Theology from Fuller Theological Seminary in Pasadena, Calif. She became ordained as an elder in 2004 and is a certified English teacher, as well as a cross-language academic development. She has lived in multiple countries, including Israel, Russia, and Hungary.

This year, the LTCA department adds Professor Zareh Artinian to the team. This semester, he teaches several Critical Writing classes and Editing & Publishing, and also acts as one of the advisers for the Veritas News.
