J. Carl Laney
Dr. Laney was born in Georgia and moved to Oregon at a young age. While attending the University of Oregon, he met the love of his life, Nancy Lilly, whom he married in 1971. They have been blessed by four grown children and four grandchildren.
Raised in a Christian home, he expressed his faith in Jesus at a young age, but it was not until his days at the University of Oregon that he entered into a more personal relationship with God. It was during his junior year that he sensed God leading him into Christian service and upon graduating from college he attended Western Seminary.
Dr. Laney has served as the Professor of Biblical Studies at Western Seminary since 1977. He has also spent time abroad as a visiting professor at seminaries in the Philippines and the Netherlands. On his travels, he has visited Asia, Europe, and the Middle East. Dr. Laney enjoys teaching Bible classes and courses that focus on the historical, geographical and cultural backgrounds of the Bible.
