Biography

Early Life and Education

Ted Warren Ward was born in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania during the Depression (1930). During the Johnstown flood of 1936, the Ward family moved to Avon Park, Florida where he completed all of his public school education, and became widely known as a promising young flutist and conductor. The Wards attended a Presbyterian church, and at 11 years of age, Ted made a formal faith commitment and joined the church. "I'd grown up with an awareness of Christ in my life, so it really wasn't that much of a transformation. At home there was a keen awareness of the importance of the Bible. Also, a former missionary to China became dear to our family. We called her Aunt Mabel and she spent her last years with us. She was a deeply spiritual person with a keen sense of God's work in the world. It was through her influence that I learned to look beyond the typical Americans me-us-and-ours viewpoint."

In 1948, Ted moved to Wheaton, Illinois to begin a degree in music education at Wheaton College. There he met another flutist, Margaret Hockett from Evanston, IL. Ted graduated with a bachelor's degree in music education in 1951, and in June he and Margaret were married.

Ted became band director at Wheaton College Academy while he was a student at Wheaton College. After he graduated, he continued as band director and music teacher (1950-1952), but with an eagerness to go overseas. Ted and Margaret prepared to teach in a Bible school in France, but God had other plans. "Sometimes God leads us into experiences to let us discover how willing we are to follow him. The key to an understanding of God's will for our lives is committed planning followed by plenty of space for God to surprise us!"

In 1953, the Wards drove to Florida where Ted would begin a masters degree in music teacher education. They arrived in a driving rain, with Ted almost too late for registration. But a "can-do" registrar cleared the way providing a map of the campus, directing him where to go, and then calling ahead. Ted never forgot this act of service to a harried, soaked, beginning graduate student; and for all of his own career he has been a "can-do" administrator who creates organizational climates where people are served rather than treated as commodities. He received the Master of Education degree in 1954 (emphasis in music teacher education) and the Ed.D. degree in 1956 (emphasis in educational research and curriculum for professional development).

During this time Ted was active in church leadership (Director of Christian Education, 1954-1956, Gainesville, Florida), music education (Choral director and instrumental teacher at the University of Miami, Florida Summer Music Festival, 1951-54), and teacher development (Instructor and Assistant Professor at the University of Florida, Gainesville, 1953-1956; major responsibility for the development of the regional school-based teacher education centers in Duval and Pinellas Counties).

The mission field was now clearly not what the Lord had in mind for Ted and Margaret. He left the University of Florida and accepted an appointment as Professor of Education and Curriculum Research for Michigan State University, East Lansing, Michigan (1956-1986). His major assignments during his 30 years at MSU included: Development of the school-based teacher education center, Pontiac, and the continuing education center for metropolitan Detroit 1956-1961; Coordinator for doctoral program development, College of Education; Curriculum Coordinator, College of Education, 1961-1963; Associate Director for Research, Instructional Materials Center for Handicapped Children and Youth, U.S. Office of Education 1965-1972; Director, Learning Systems Institute, 1963-1971; Director, Human Learning Research Institute, 1966-1971; Director, Values Development Education Program (Lilly Endowment), 1973-1976; Research Specialist in Ethnographic Studies, Institute for International Studies in Education; Coordinator, Nonformal Education in Indonesia and Brazil (research and development project), 1974-1978; Chairman of the University Advisory Council 1976-1978; and Chairman of the Committee on Mission of the College of Education, 1977-1978.

At the same time, he served in two churches as Minister of Music (1957-1961, Detroit, Michigan; and 1962-1970, Lansing, Michigan); and as president and chairman of the board of the Pontiac Symphony Orchestra Association, Pontiac, Michigan (1959-1961).

Professional Interests

Ted's professional interests include human learning, instructional design and technology, educational administration, theological education, intercultural competencies, social/cultural dynamics, missionary roles and problems, family tasks in moral education, leadership development, and cultural orientation of teachers and missionaries. These areas of expertise have coalesced around three major areas of professional research: The education of educators. His effort to establish teacher education centers in local school districts apart from the university was an innovation in his time. His influence on the development of educators spans the university, the seminary, and the Christian college. There is hardly an evangelical theological institution in North America, not to mention in many countries of the world, that does not have at least one faculty member who has been touched in some way by Ted's passion for the educator as facilitator of the learning community. Education in developing nations. The evangelical community knows Ted best for his work in education in the Third World. Well over 100 evangelical missions professors, missionary executives, and Christian education leaders did their doctoral work with Ted. His investments internationally encompassed community development, mission strategy, and development in theological education, which have given him an intimate knowledge of educational matters around the world. His contributions include scholarly works on Third World education, especially nonformal education, and involvement in the production of the World Dictionary of Mission Related Educational Institutions (1968). He was influential in the early years of the Theological Education by Extension movement (1967-1976). Moral development. During the 1970s, Ted established and directed the Michigan State University, Values Education Research Center. His work in the area of moral development and the family led to involvement with the National Association of Evangelicals and the U.S. Congress on the Family (1976). For five years he was the chairman of the Task Force on the Family (National Association of Evangelicals); in 1980 he was Research Adviser and Delegate-at-large, White House Conference on Families, Washington and Los Angeles. "I am personally and professionally committed to interdisciplinary and intercultural understanding of human development defined in the broadest possible way.".

The Move to Trinity Evangelical Divinity School (TEDS)

Ted is often asked how the move to TEDS came about. "Over the years, many Christian educational institutions asked us to consider joining them, especially in an administrative capacity. We felt that God had called us to a special kind of work at Michigan State. As we thought about the option of retirement after 30 years at Michigan State, we asked God to show us whether to stay on or accept some other position. At MSU, I was involved in non-institutional reforms in human development, not just training teachers for schools and narrowly church-based programs. Trinity was open to this broader definition of education." In the fall of 1985, Ted started his final year at Michigan State, and began halftime at Trinity. Soon after, he was appointed Professor of Christian Education and Mission, Dean of International Studies, Mission, and Education, and named Aldeen Professor of Missions, Education, and International Studies. He retired officially in 1994, but continued an active teaching role until 1999, and served as consultant to the Ph.D. programs in Educational Studies and Intercultural Studies.

As a Christian educator, Ted has a passion for the field of Christian Education to be driven by sound theology and guided by careful research. He has challenged NAPCE as a body on several occasions, at one time arguing that "Christian Education is neither." Through his writing, speaking and teaching, he has continually called, urged, prodded and cajoled us as Christian educators to be more Christian and better educators.

During his tenure at MSU he was often accused (justly) of running a seminary on campus because of the Christian students he attracted, and his ongoing insistence that Christians must think theologically about educational questions. Perhaps his greatest legacy will be the ministries of students he has trained, both at Michigan State and Trinity. In 1994 a group of international students who were studying at Trinity were questioned about what had attracted them to study at TEDS. Every one mentioned that Ted Ward had come to his or her country and each student had talked personally with him.

His major assignments while at TEDS included: Development of Research Doctorates in Education and Intercultural Studies; Director of Institutional Study for the year 2000. One of his dreams for Trinity was to help faculty and students gain a larger view of the church in the world, and to stimulate partnerships internationally.

Ted's students are unusually devoted to him. If he were producing student in his own image that would quickly grow old. But he respects differences in people and never forces students into molds. His students love and revere him because he brings out the best in them, empowering them to think in ways they never conceived as possible, and to do things they never dreamed possible.

Not surprisingly, Ted's expertise and wisdom has been sought after by numerous organizations for whom he has served as board member and/or consultant. The list of conference, seminar and workshop engagements around the world seems endless and Ted is still involved as a consultant, conference and seminar leader, commencement speaker, and workshop clinician.

Ted retired from MSU in 1985 as Professor Emeritus the College of Education, and moved to Illinois to establish a PhD program at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School in Christian Education. He officially retired from Trinity in 1994 and continued in a gradually diminishing role until 1998. Since 2001 he has served as Senior Advisor for Leadership Development for the MacLellan Foundation (Chattanooga, TN), consulting on project funding for overseas leader development programs, especially in India and China. He continues to speak and write.

Major Consultative Service

He has consulted in many areas of the world for government and non-governmental organizations and for denominational and para-church agencies. Years before the concept of "learning organization" was made popular by MIT's Peter Senge, Ted was challenging his students to create developmental learning organizations-organizations committed to creating safe-place learning environments in which individual potential was respected and enhanced, individual differences were celebrated, and members were expected to think theologically about their educational ministry. In his extensive consulting with Bible colleges, Christian colleges and universities, mission agencies and para-church organizations, Ted consistently challenged them to value their people, minimize authoritarian bureaucracy, and create space for effective learning and ministry to take place.

Contributions to Christian Education

Spanning a period of more than fifty years, Ted Ward has served the field of professional education as teacher, administrator, innovator and researcher, educator of leaders, mentor of emerging leaders, and consultant to institutions and governmental ministries of education. During the middle years of his career he specialized in educational planning and leadership development for many of the emerging nations. These contributions were recognized in the Dag Hammarskjold Citation for Service in Developing Nations, Uppsala, Sweden 1975. Well over a hundred of his doctoral students today hold service and leadership positions in many nations.

During his 30 years at Michigan State University, Ted held professorships of Curriculum and Instruction, International Education, and Educational Administration. He founded and directed the Learning Systems Institute, a research and development organization dedicated to the improvement of educational institutions and solving of instructional problems; served the College of Social Science and College of Education as director of the Institute for Research in Human Learning; and associate director for Research for the USOE Center at MSU for Instructional Materials for the Handicapped. He was coordinator of Graduate Studies in Nonformal Education, and affiliated with the Institute for International Studies in Education. With support of the Lilly Endowment, he established at Michigan State University the Values Development Education Center. Ted's international experience includes research, training and fieldwork in more than 64 countries. These projects focused on instructional improvement within various higher education and adult education institutions and organizations. Of particular emphasis was the problem of adapting instructional materials from one culture to another.

He has published widely and his writings have contributed extensively to formal and nonformal education. His Living Overseas (Macmillan) has been used for over fifteen years as a training manual and handbook for missionaries, intercultural educators and consultants as well the general population of Americans in overseas assignments.

He has been guest lecturer and consultant for numerous colleges and a wide variety of educational and church oriented associations, ranging from medical schools to theological seminaries. He served on the advisory boards of various national organizations, as well as several organizations engaged in relief and development work.

Since retiring from service in the International Institute at Michigan State University, and from Trinity Evangelical Divinity School, Ted has developed an extensive involvement in pastoral development within the church. He continues his dedication to the innovation of alternative models of educational experience, especially the current emphasis on church-based theological education. Ted's has managed across his career to integrate and connect the areas of his professional service: education, mission, community development, and the various ministries of the church. He thinks in terms of "international studies in education" and "the international development of the church." For his students and colleagues, he has modeled the importance of thinking and acting strategically, integratively, and holistically. ("To know and not to act is not to know.") His life and career have been grounded in a passion for service and justice and the development of the person.

Ted's personal journey through several phases of diverse professional interest indicate the breadth of his professional expertise, as well as his commitment to lifelong learning.

On a personal level, Ted and Margaret have four sons and a daughter, and thirteen grandchildren. In 1997, Ted Ward and his wife Margaret were honored by Wheaton College as Alumni of the Year, with special recognition of their extensive service to society across the world.

More could be written of the remarkable career of this remarkable man-a career that continues even in retirement and that is reflected in the lives of hundreds of people now serving in Christian education and missions leadership who consider him one of their most significant and demanding teachers, a valued and respected colleague, and a good friend.

Excerpts from Publications

(1987). "Developing a Global View of Ministry." Moody Monthly April: 23-25

In the coming years, evangelical churches must become far more international in their perspective. We talk a lot about national activities, but we do not really have a grasp of what it means to part of the worldwide church.

It's no longer adequate for American Christians to think of themselves as mission contributors and other nations as receivers... American churches are not sufficiently internationally minded. To change this situation, pastors need to be trained with a global perspective. A strong missions major in the seminary is not the answer.

Instead, theological institutions need policies and practices that will develop in all students, not just those headed overseas, a healthy concern for the international development of the church.

To begin, seminary faculty need more than superficial international experience. Many have traveled to another country, but too often as a sort of lecturing tourist. For seminary professors to develop a global perspective, contacts with the worldwide church must become frequent and typical rather than unique...

The future pastor must become a world citizen if future Christians are to be able to transcend purely national loyalties. It's not hard to imagine that in the near future pastors will no longer be rained missions or evangelism. These fields, too, will become academic specializations. The church tomorrow has to think in terms of the ways we can best benefit from a reciprocal involvement with brother and sister churches in other nations.

Some denominations have been effective in thinking of missions as a two-way street. They bring people from other countries to teach us competencies we don't have...

Seminary and Bible school faculty members should be involved continuously in the church in other parts of the world. No amount of reading, no amount of secondhand information can give instructors the perspective and the understanding they can gain from working with a church or Christian organization in another country.

If seminary faculty and pastors are aloof from the worldwide mission of the church, North American churches are going to lack the appropriate world consciousness. Some of our prominent pastors and professors who travel around the world would learn a lot more if they could listen as much as they speak. Generally they're not given that chance. When they do go overseas, they are placed on every available platform and are expected to recite American-style sermons and lectures with the aid of a translator. That's about as little involvement with the people as you can possibly get and still call it "international."

I'm committed to tangible involvement in global ministry. Here's one example: Almost every mission-sponsored theological seminary and Bible school I the world is taught in a language not spoken by the common people of that region; most often, instead it is in English or a trade language such as Swahili or French. In Nigeria, For example, young seminarians who have grown up in churches that speak Yoruba or Hausa or Ibo go to seminaries where they are taught in English. Thus they are drawn further away from their language of service. Because theological education in the vernacular language is rarely available, education may alienate pastors from their people.

To be effective, a pastor must deal with people in their own language. But if all of his theological thinking and all of his books are in a trade language, he can be on a different wavelength from the people in his church.

Similarly, one of the most serious wastes in the church today is the requirement that all overseas students write their papers in English. This means that for many "foreign" students, their potential contribution to desperately needed Christian literature back home are left behind in the United States, locked up in English on the professor's desk. Instead, we should encourage them to write their papers first in the language in which they serve. Afterward, they can be handed to the professor with an English-language translation. International students are quite capable and wiling to do this.

The forward-looking Christian education of the future must be concerned about the international development of the church. 'World Christian' must become more than a catchy slogan.
