Dr. Michael Frost is the Vice Principal (responsible for Faculty Development) at Morling College and the Director of the Tinsley Institute in Sydney, Australia. A part time lecturer at Morling from 1994, he joined the faculty full time when he founded the Tinsley Institute in 1999. Michael teaches various missiology and evangelism subjects, and has written extensively on a missional paradigm for the church in a post-Christian era.
His books include Jesus the Fool, The Shaping of Things to Come, Exiles, ReJesus, The Faith of Leap, The Big Ideas, The Road to Missional and Incarnate. Several of his books have been translated into Spanish, German, Swedish and Korean, which has led to an extensive international speaking ministry.
As part of his work with the Tinsley Institute, Michael has developed a number of internships for Morling students in such fields as international aid, urban mission, cross-cultural mission and evangelistic preaching. He also expanded the vision of the Tinsley Institute in 2008 to include an interest in public theology and church planting.
Prior to joining the Morling faculty, he had pastoral experience in two Baptist churches in Sydney and in 2002 he planted a church in Manly, where he continues to be an active member with his wife Carolyn.
