The faculty and staff of Pentecostal Theological Seminary gathered for breakfast yesterday, May 16, at the Poitier Student Commons honoring and celebrating 27 years of Dr. and Mrs. Cason’s full-time ministry at PTS. After 27 years of illustrious educational ministry as a full-time administrator and faculty, Dr. Ron Cason is now transitioning into a new phase of educational ministry that will involve part-time teaching at PTS as well as being a missionary teacher for many Church of God educational institutions around the globe. During his full-time tenure at PTS, he has led the work of Institutional Advancement and was honored by holding the James W. Hamilton Endowed Chair for Teaching Lay Involvement. Among other expertise in the area of pastoral theology, Dr. Cason, as a certified conflict mediator, made significant contributions to various conflict situations involving local churches and/or other organizations. Dr. Cason has taught courses and conducted seminars in various states in the U.S. and abroad. Rooted in the Wesleyan-Pentecostal theology and spirituality, his research and writings have made a substantial impact among students, ministers, and lay people alike. The particular work that stands out is his research and writing on the biblical concept of “shame”. His work has helped advance the broadening of a theological understanding of sin and salvation. Much of his original thoughts in this regard were transfused into several of the classes he taught and the seminars he conducted. Among others, the course “Conflict Ministry” was most loved by students and others who had the privilege to learn from him. As Dr. Cason transitions into a new phase of educational ministry, the PTS community joins in expressing our gratitude for the contribution he has made and will continue to make at PTS and around the world.
