Debbie Irwin (pictured with President Klaus), wife of missionary David Irwin (1931-1984, below), donated her husband’s expansive collection of missions books to AGTS.

The Irwins ministered in Africa for 11 fruitful years before coming to Springfield, Mo., in 1970 to work with field promotions for AG foreign missions. David served as AGTS assistant professor of missions from 1975 to 1982. At the time of his tragic death in a car accident, he was the international coordinator of the Center for Ministry to Muslims.

Check out three new AGTS resources:

  • The Essential J. Philip Hogan, edited by Byron D. Klaus and Douglas P. Petersen, the first in the J. Philip Hogan World Missions Series.
  • Él Nos Dio Apóstoles, the Spanish version of AGTS’s previously published He Gave Apostles, edited by Edgar R. Lee.
  • Summer 2006 issue of Encounter: Journal for Pentecostal Ministry ( with features on expository preaching by George Wood and Dick Dresselhaus and African-American preaching by Maurice Watson.

As part of the King-Seymour Leadership forum at AGTS in the spring of 2006, AGTS has published recommendations to the AG’s Commission on Ethnicity.

AGTS President Byron D. Klaus; Associate Professor Stephen Lim; and AGTS Board of Directors members Zollie Smith, Charles McKinney and Edward Peecher wrote the recommendations.
