Bio

Dr. Sieges discovered her love of the Bible at a young age. Raised on the mission field in Papua New Guinea, Dr. Sieges’ parents instilled in her a deep love and respect for the scriptures as they worked with mission groups and indigenous peoples to translate the Bible into unwritten languages.

Dr. Sieges came to Gardner-Webb as an undergraduate student in 2002. Her Religion classes at Gardner-Webb gave her tools to study the Bible in greater depth and know God in new ways. It was in her senior prophets class that she felt the call of God to continue her studies and become a Bible professor.

Dr. Sieges came back to Gardner-Webb as a professor in 2015. She is passionate about helping students dive into the richness and intricacies of the scriptures.
