     Curtis’ dissertation, a piece of original research entitled, “Up the Steep and Stony Road: The Book of Zechariah in Social Location Trajectory Analysis,” is a sociological analysis of the changing relationship between the Old Testament prophet Zechariah and his audience society in ancient Judah, and features a new argument for the authorial unity of this prophetic book. Curtis will now seek to publish the dissertation with the assistance of a faculty development grant from Geneva

He served as a pastor in Cary, North Carolina for six years and has served on the Geneva faculty for fourteen years.
