OKLAHOMA CITY — Jeremie Beller has been named chairman of the Bible department and director of church relations at Oklahoma Christian University.
Beller has served as congregational minister for the Wilshire Church of Christ in Oklahoma City for more than 20 years. Before that, he preached for the Chandler Church of Christ in Oklahoma.
He has taught Bible and communication courses at Oklahoma Christian as an adjunct professor.
An alumnus of Oklahoma Christian, Beller received a bachelor’s degree in Bible and ministry as well as a Master of Arts in Ministry and a Master of Divinity in Congregational Ministry.
He earned a doctorate in communication and persuasion from the University of Oklahoma. His dissertation focused on religion and racism.
“Many may know him through his balanced editorial contributions to The Christian Chronicle on what many times are controversial topics,” said Jeff McCormack, Oklahoma Christian’s chief academic officer.
Beller will retain his role as opinions editor for the Chronicle but give up overseeing book reviews.
Calvin Cockrell, a Chronicle correspondent and social media editor, will assume the reviews editor role.
Cockrell, a freelance communicator specializing in graphic design, writing, editing and photography, earned a Master of Arts in Journalism from the University of Alabama.
He also serves as the young adults minister for the North Tuscaloosa Church of Christ in Alabama.
