Derrick Lemons graduated from Southern Wesleyan University with a Bachelor of Science in Religion (1994) and from Asbury Theological Seminary with a Master’s (1997) and Doctorate (2008). As a Cultural Anthropologist, his teaching and research are guided by his interest in how religious subcultures intentionally innovate and influence greater society. Also, he is interested in how religion in American culture changes over time and space. Currently, he is doing research on the effects of the Missional church movement in evangelical denominations in America, how millienials’ theological, social, and religious community orientations influence their religiosity, and on developing an anthropologically-informed reflexive theological structure to aid research in the anthropology of Christianity.
