John-Paul Lotz, Ph.D.


Dr. John-Paul Lotz was appointed as an associate professor at the Regent University School of Divinity in July 2022.

Lotz grew up in Zurich, Switzerland, as the son of missionary parents. He went on to study at the Universities of Richmond, Muenster, Samford, Vienna, and Cambridge. He has lived and taught in Europe for almost 20 years. In addition, he has served as both a pastor and a professor in Europe and the United States for the last 15 years.

Lotz specializes in the field of patristics—which is the branch of Christian theology centered around the lives, writings, and doctrines of early Christian theologians. His continued areas of interest include New Testament Apocrypha and the history of ideas as they pertain to Biblical and historical theology. Lotz teaches the breadth of Church History from the ancient to the modern church.

He is married and he and his wife home-educate their six children.
