My name is Russ Veldman and I am a pastor in the Free Methodist Church – USA. My old blog was under the same name – Faster Unto Thee – but I took a break from it and decided to return to blogging with a better focus and on a free platform!
I graduated from Asbury Theological Seminary in 1998 with the M.Div. degree and have high hopes of earning an academic degree (M.Th. and/or Ph.D.) in the near future, possibly from The South African Theological Seminary.
I also am an adjunct instructor for Indiana Wesleyan University, teaching in the College of Adult and Professional Studies. I teach introductory courses in Bible, theology, pastoral ministry, and speech.
After ten years at a previous pastorate, I began a new one in July of 2013. With that new beginning, it seems time for a new version of my blog, Faster Unto Thee.
