Director of Theological Education, Missional Training Center – Phoenix, Professor of Missional Theology

Dr. Mike Goheen began his professional life as a church planter and pastor in the Toronto, Canada area. For over two decades, he taught worldview studies, biblical theology, and missiology at Dordt College, Redeemer University College, Trinity Western University, Regent College, Calvin Theological Seminary, and Covenant Seminary.

He also spends time each year training pastoral leaders in Brazil and Chile.
