Captivated by the intricacies of the interpretive movement from Scripture to sermon, Kuruvilla centers his ministry around homiletics: exploring preaching through research and scholarship, explaining preaching by training the next generation of church leaders, and exemplifying preaching in regular pulpit engagements.
Dr. Kuruvilla is the Carl E. Bates Professor of Christian Preaching. Before joining Southern Seminary he taught preaching at Dallas Theological Seminary for fourteen years. Kuruvilla has also served as interim pastor of several churches, and as president of the Evangelical Homiletics Society. In addition, he is a Diplomate of the American Board of Dermatology and maintains an active clinical schedule. His research arenas include hermeneutics as it operates in the homiletical undertaking, and the theology and spirituality of preaching and pastoral leadership. Single by choice, Kuruvilla also has a special interest in the theology of Christ-centered singleness and celibacy. Dr. Kuruvilla is a member of Fellowship Church of Louisville.
