Internationale Hochschule Liebenzell is a private University of Applied Sciences existing in the tradition of Lutheran Reformation, Wurttemberg Pietism, and world mission. In its confession of faith the IHL is committed to the Holy Bible as a „true, precise preaching of the Holy Spirit“ (Confessio Virtembergica from 1552), the creeds of the Old Church and the Lutheran Reformation, as well as the Lausanne Covenant. The IHL is committed to world mission.

It provides a holistic concept of studying through academic and applied teaching. IHL especially focuses on educating personalities who are able to spread the Gospel theologically responsible, in an evangelistically inviting way, culturally sensitive and authentically in various contexts at home and abroad. Therefore, IHL understands itself as a fellowship of students and faculty in faith, life, and learning.

From September 2017 on, a position for a

Professor of Practical Theology (full-time)

IHL expects well-grounded academic knowledge in the entire discipline of practical theology, especially in church planting in an intercultural context, church leadership, and new forms of church (FreshX). Applied experience in church leadership and in teaching is expected. According to §47 LHG of the State of Baden-Wurttemberg, pre-conditions for applying are having a doctorate, 5 years of job experience, and proof of the ability to teach in an educational setting.

In addition, it is expected that the professor will involve him-/herself with own research projects which critically accompany and advice the international work of the Liebenzell Mission. Furthermore, the professor shall involve him-/herself in the to-be-established IHL research institute, and to commit to the general concept of IHL. The professor is expected to move into the region and participate in academic self-governance.
