The Rev Dr David Höhne

David teaches theology and philosophy with a bit of church history on the side.

He is currently researching for a book on the coming Kingdom of God as the fulfilment of God’s promises to save through the Lord Jesus.

With Amelia and children Anna, Joshua and Samuel, David rejoices in the opportunities to serve our heavenly Father in the College community.
