Colbert, who has graduated summa cum laude with a degree in Christian ministries and linguistics, received the award for his paper entitled “New or Renewed? A Study in the Biblical Theology of Creation and Restoration.” He developed the paper for a Biblical Theology course taught by Dr. Byron Curtis, Geneva College professor of biblical studies.
