From the website of Mike Licona the following:

He serves as research professor of New Testament at Southern Evangelical Seminary and as external research collaborator at North-West University (Potschefstroom).

Dr. Michael Licona will be visiting South Africa from 18 September to 26 September. I know I have reported on this previously, but for those who can, and live around Gauteng (South Africa), it will be well worth the effort to hear Mike Licona speak. To find out where he will be speaking (and debating) visit my previous report on his visit!
