Dr. David Bishop

Helping Students Achieve Their Goals


Dr. David Bishop is the son of a pastor and grew up in small towns throughout west Texas and Oklahoma. He graduated from high school in Pryor, OK and attended college at Oklahoma Baptist University, seminary at Golden Gate Baptist Theological Seminary and earned his PhD at Southern Baptist Theological Seminary.

After completing his PhD, he got in touch with his former Ethics professor Dr. Glenn Saul who was working for Wayland at the time. Both of Bishop’s parents graduated from Wayland and when Bishop was hired he continued that tradition.

The thing Bishop said he liked best about Wayland was that “it provides opportunity for students to achieve education goals that have a lasting effect on their lives both spiritually and in their careers.”

Bishop also added that the thing he likes best about teaching is “when I see that a student ‘gets it’ and will take that with them and be blessed by the understanding that they came to in my course.”
