Dick was sent by the Asia-Pacific Nazarene Theological Seminary, Philippines, to the UK to pursue doctoral studies in order to return to be the Seminary’s resident dogmatic theologian. He has written his thesis, “Communion with God: The Trinitarian Soteriology of Thomas F. Torrance,” under the supervision of Dr. Thomas A. Noble. Dick finished his Doctor of Philosophy in November 2011. With his wife Mary Ann and daughter Heloise, he returned to the Philippines in January 2012. He is currently a full-time faculty of APNTS, Manila, teaching theology courses and serving as the Director of the Master of Science in Theology program and the Dean of Chapel.
His main theological interest lies in the doctrine of the Trinity and the implications of Trinitarian thinking to the church’s theological formulation, worship and mission. His evangelical interest lies in the evangelization of both culture and the mind of both Christians and non-Christians. "Theology is both dialogical and evangelical; it engages other traditions and faiths while remaining faithful to the Gospel content and mission."
His thesis has been published as Communion with the Triune God: The Trinitarian Soteriology of Thomas F. Torrance (Pickwick Publications, 2014).
