Professor of Liturgical Theology
Dr. Sue A. Rozeboom is a native of West Michigan. Upon graduating from Holland Christian Schools, she obtained a BA in music from Calvin College, an MTS from Calvin Seminary, and a PhD in Liturgical Studies from the University of Notre Dame. Her dissertation research centered on John Calvin’s understanding of the role of the Holy Spirit and believers’ nourishment in the celebration of the sacrament of the Lord’s Supper.
Ordained in the Christian Reformed Church, Dr. Rozeboom is currently Professor of Liturgical Theology at Western Theological Seminary, where she and students together delve deeply into topics such as the Trinity and Christian Worship, the Holy Spirit and the Sacraments, historical Christian practices, and what we can learn from them for the church today.
Sue’s husband, Paul Rozeboom, grew up in Washington state, has degrees from Calvin College/University and Western Michigan University, and is an engineer and business leader in an engineering and architectural firm. They have two children: Liesl, a student at Butler University, and Charlie, a student in high school. Alongside teaching, Sue gardens, birds, reads, travels, camps, and — with her family — enjoys just about any good story well-told in just about any medium, be it a book, movie, poetry, ballad, museum exhibit, or mural.
