Graduate Studies

In 2007, Mr. Lovelace completed his Master of Divinity, a 96-credit graduate degree, with an emphasis in translation. He earned a Master of Theology in 2013 (formally equal to half of a Ph.D.) from the same institution, Calvary Baptist Theological Seminary.

Undergraduate Studies

Mr. Lovelace is a 1996 graduate of Wabash University, where he earned a double major in Russian and Spanish, and was inducted one year early into the ΦΣΙ Honorary Society for outstanding achievement in language studies. As part of this degree, he completed studies in Russian at Kuban State University in Southern Russia and Spanish studies in Madrid at the Universidad Complutense. Following his undergraduate studies, Mr. Lovelace worked for seven years as an interpreter and translator with Baptist International Evangelistic Ministries, a humanitarian and educational ministry based partially in Ukraine and Russia.

RECOMMENDATION FROM A PREVIOUS CLIENT As president of Baptist International Evangelistic Ministries (BIEM) I am glad to recommend Chris Lovelace who preformed outstanding services for our organization as our Russian Language and Cultural specialist. His duties with BIEM included daily translation of financial reports, correspondence, international shipping documentation, legal documents and other items from English to Russian and from Russian to English.

While employed with BIEM, Chris also interpreted for conferences and escorted Russian-speaking ministers across the United States for over 100 speaking engagements. Furthermore Mr. Lovelace interpreted in business meetings, court hearings, and even during visits with host-families for some guests of BIEM.

During his full-time employment as a translator with BIEM, Chris at our request published
A Path Not Lined With Roses, a first-person narrative of religious persecution in the Soviet Union. Mr. Lovelace was also contracted by another agency during this time to translate Moscow Express, the final book written by the renowned Georgi Vins before his death.

In addition to Mr. Lovelace's excellent professional abilities he is truly a man of impeccable character, hard work ethic, a consummate "team player", and is absolutely gifted in people skills. I have often witnessed his unusual ability to sense potential conflicts between personalities which can be difficult and then creatively develop a strategy to avoid a conflict or resolve an existing one without offending anyone. It was a great loss for us when Chris left our organization to pursue further studies. We have always hoped that when he completes his pursuit of advanced degrees, we would be so fortunate as to have him work for us again.
