From South America to NBC
Wow! It is thirteen years at Nazarene Bible College as an Adjunct Professor. My name is Ramesh K. Deosarran.
I was born in Guyana, South America, where I answered the Call of God to preach at an early age. My parents were influential in my life, and my Aunt Mavis, introduced me to the Church of the Nazarene in 1973. In 1975, I attended the Caribbean Nazarene Theological College in Trinidad. In 1979, I served as Pastor of the Dow Village Church of the Nazarene in Trinidad. In 1980, I graduated with the Ministerial Diploma and in 1982, I graduated with the Bachelor of Theology Degree. This degree was earned through Canadian Nazarene College. In 1983, I served as Pastor of the Gros Islet Church of the Nazarene in St. Lucia on the Windward Islands District.
In January of 1987, I attended the Nazarene Theological Seminary. I graduated with the Master of Divinity Degree in 1991. In 1992, I served as Pastor of the Grapevine Church of the Nazarene. In 1995, I enrolled in the Doctor of Ministry Program at Nazarene Theological Seminary. In 2000, I graduated with the Doctor of Ministry Degree. My Dissertation is: Congregation Response To a Human Need: A Case Study in AIDS Ministry. This information is now available in a book, “A Handbook in HIV/AIDS Counseling.” In 2005, I graduated with a PhD from Newburgh Theological Seminary, Newburgh, Indiana. Now, I am the Assistant Pastor at the Haltom City Church of the Nazarene.
I discovered that teaching Online is a challenging experience. I learned how to make this experience friendly. I love what I do. Several people invested in me. It is my turn to invest in others. In every class, I tell each student that we will learn together. I am probably known among students that I ask a lot of questions. I also tell students that we will stretch our intellectual muscles to discover the gems in the Bible. I always look forward to the evaluation of students. I am thrilled at the positive comments. I also strive to use the not so positive comments to improve my teaching experience. I am also told that “Dr. D is tough, but I learned from him.” It is a nice feeling. I also learn from each student.
I have a wonderful family. My children and grandchildren bring immense joy to my life. We live near and see each other often. Fishing is a favorite activity.
I was a member of the Lions Club. I served in the Grapevine Lions Club and the Fort Worth Trinity Lions Club. I served as President, Secretary, and Treasurer. I also served as District President for the Drug Awareness Council.
I enjoy traveling, reading, writing, fishing, and watching cricket on television.
