The Harpers have been missionaries with ACTION since 1994. George teaches church history and historical theology. He holds a Ph.D. from Boston University, an M.Div. from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary and a B.S. from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Anne teaches courses on missions and spiritual formation. She holds a D.Miss. from Asia Graduate School of Theology – Philippines, an M.C.S. from Alliance Biblical Seminary, and a B.A. from Boston University.
Both George and Anne teach and have administrative roles at Asia Graduate School of Theology – Philippines (AGST). The AGST is a consortium of nine evangelical seminaries, most of them located in metro Manila, that are affiliated with the Asia Theological Association. Its member schools have a combined enrollment of about a thousand. They collaborate to offer advanced degrees like the Th.M., D.Min., D.Miss., Ed.D., and Ph.D. For these programs they draw students not only from their own schools but from across East and South Asia, including closed countries within the “10-40 Window” like Myanmar and Nepal. The AGST is helping to train a new generation of faculty members for Asian seminaries and Bible colleges who will in turn train a new generation of pastors, evangelists, and church workers to serve Asia’s rapidly growing Christian community.
In addition to their teaching responsibilities, George is editor of the Asian Journal of Evangelical Theology, and Anne is editor of the Journal of Asian Mission.
They have two children: Ruth has just graduated from Northeastern University School of Law and is looking for a job. Meg is organist and choir director at St. John’s Episcopal Church in Portsmouth, NH, and is director of a new after-school choir school for disadvantaged youth.
