Boomershine is professor emeritus of New Testament and Christianity and Communications at United Theological Seminary. He also is an author and the founder of the Network of Biblical Storytellers International, and has been a primary source for the development of performance criticism as a new paradigm for the study and interpretation of the Bible.

The title of his presentation was Engage the Digital Age: Communicating the Unchanging Gospel in an Ever-Changing Culture. Peeples received his Master of Divinity from Concordia Seminary, St. Louis in 2009, and is the first graduate of the church plant training program of the Mid-South District of The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod (LCMS).
