H. Michael Shultz Jr.
Associate Professor of Church History 


Dr. H. Michael Shultz Jr. began preaching and teaching itinerantly in 2007, and accepted his first pastorate in 2011. In 2019, he accepted the call to pastor Antioch Baptist Church in Lewisburg, KY., and in that time he and his wife have been blessed with two precious daughters.

A firm believer in the mission and work of Forge Theological Seminary, Shultz serves as Associate Professor of Church History, is a member of the Board of Trustees, and is the General Editor of the Seminary’s Academic Journal, Ecclesia Militans. Aside from his work as a pastor
and professor, Shultz also works as a Senior Editor for the Holy Scriptures Bible Society and a Chaplain (Captain) for the Civil Air Patrol.


As an academic, Shultz maintains a consistent publication record with recent articles and book reviews published in Bound Away, Eleutheria, as well as being a regular content contributor with Servants of Grace. He maintains two areas of expertise in historical studies. In secular history, he
specializes in Trans-Atlantic African-American history during the Progressive Era. In Church History, he specializes in Russo-Baptist relations from the time of Empress Catherine the Great through the end of the Cold War.


As a side project, Shultz is set to publish his commentary on Revelation, A Fourth Man in the Furnace in 2025.
