Dr. John Neiswinger came to Belhaven in the fall of 2016, after being a postdoctoral fellow at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) for 2.5 years. He graduated in 2014 from the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine in the Department of Pharmacology and Molecular Sciences.
Since graduation, John has used his knowledge of science to engage in apologetics for the Christian faith, not only with his students, but with other professional scientists. Throughout all of the courses that he teaches, he stresses the beauty and design of biological life and how modern science points to our Creator. He believes that doing science in this way is an act of worship that glorifies God for all He has made.
John has been married to his wife Lauren since 2007 and they have 4 children (all of which he had in graduate school - a decision he does not regret, but does not recommend!). In his spare time, he enjoys cooking, woodworking, and playing piano/keyboard in his bands Orphan Project and Visual Cliff.
