William C. Turner

Professor Turner's ongoing work focuses on pneumatology and the tradition of spirituality and preaching within the black church. Articles on "Black Evangelicalism," "The Musicality of Black Preaching," and "The Black Church and the Ecumenical Tradition" reflect his teaching and writing interests. He taught in the areas of theology and Black Church Studies and directed the Office of Black Church Affairs prior to his appointment in homiletics.

Professor Turner travels widely as a preacher and lecturer. He retains active involvement in church and community activities. Dr. Turner held positions within Duke University in student affairs and Afro-American Studies before joining the Divinity School faculty. Before that, he played football for Duke. He is the pastor of Mt. Level Baptist Church in Durham.
