“Ken Mulzac came to Andrews University to teach preaching,
but sadly, he barely had a chance to share his many gifts with our seminary
students. We will greatly miss Ken and all he had to offer the students, staff
and faculty at Andrews University,” said Niels-Erik Andreasen, president of
During his career Mulzac published a number of scholarly
books and articles on Old Testament prophets and other biblical themes. He also
authored several articles in the Eerdmans Dictionary of the Bible,
published in 2000. Mulzac was a well-known speaker and preacher, and was often
invited to speak at international conferences, congresses and churches.
Students appreciated him for his “passionate teaching and
personal care for us as your students. You challenge, inspire, and hold us
accountable to preach powerful sermons for God’s glory.”
Mulzac leaves behind his wife, Belynda, and their daughters, Breanda and Karla.
