Dr. Floyd Elmore

Emeritus Professor of Biblical Theology


Floyd Elmore has served the Christian community for more than forty-five years. He seeks to help people think like Christ so that they can be more effective in their witness and their work.

Floyd has ministered as a missionary in Honduras, Costa Rica, and Cuba; as a pastor in churches in Texas and Ohio; and as a professor in several Christian universities and seminaries.

After serving as Professor of Bible and Greek at Cedarville University for sixteen years, Floyd became Senior Pastor of FairCreek Church in Fairborn, Ohio. The historical ties of the church to Cuba led him to accept a call to serve as Academic Dean of ESEPA Seminary in San José, Costa Rica, and also supervise a Master’s program in Cuba.

After relocating to the USA, Floyd began teaching at Southern Evangelical Seminary in 2012.
