A memory submitted by Brian Minietta, Class of 1999

My faculty memory involves Dr. Joerg Rieger.

When I was a seminary student, we had a project called the “West Dallas Work Project.” Dr. Rieger always taught that you must do theology with “dirt under your fingernails.” These were not merely words for him. On multiple Saturdays, we headed out to sites around West Dallas and did our best to make a difference. What a grand opportunity to hang out with a professor, work side by side with him, talk theology, and get our hands dirty together as we worked out & lived out our calling!
