Now that their four home educated children are adults, James Stobaugh and his wife Karen have a strong burden for the new leadership group that God is calling forth from the homeschooling community.
Jim was a Merrill Fellow at Harvard University and holds a B.A. cum laude from Vanderbilt, an M.A. from Rutgers University, an M.Div. from Princeton Theological Seminary, and a D.Min. from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary.
An experienced teacher, he is a recognized leader in homeschooling and has published several books for students and teachers. Some books in the series Preparing Thoughtful Christians to be World Changers, with both student and teacher editions, are Skills for Literary Analysis (2005); Skills for Rhetoric (2005); World Literature (2005); American Literature (2005); and British Literature (2005). Stobaugh has also published Fire That Burns but Does Not Consume (2003); A Gathered Inheritance (2004); and SAT and College Preparation Course for the Christian Student (1998; revised edition, 2004).
He lives near Hollsopple, Pennsylvania, and travels widely to speak at conventions about literature, teaching, and education.
“The speaker was very knowledgeable, encouraging, and inspiring. I appreciate that he began and closed with prayer, and that he kept the focus of education where it should be: on evangelism, discipleship, and the sovereignty of Christ!”— Beverly, GA
