He was inspired by Lester Perrin, a former history professor at Lubbock Christian College. After student teaching, he furthered his education at Texas Tech and completed his PhD. His first classroom was at Lubbock Christian School, where he taught for 6 years. From there, he moved to Lubbock ISD for 10 years. Later, he accepted a position at Lubbock Christian University. This is his 30th year at LCU. He is originally from Vernon, Texas, but he and his wife, Syl, have lived in Lubbock for 40+ years. They have three children: Conor, Vicky, and John Michael. Conor and his family live in San Angelo, Vicky and her family live in Azle, and John Michael lives here in Lubbock. Dr. Owen enjoys hunting, fishing and collecting historical weapons. He is fascinated by British history and is always up to lead a tour of Great Britain. He has embarked on multiple trips with LCU to England, Italy, Austria, Spain, France, Ireland, and Greece. He is extremely passionate about his job and he absolutely loves to be in a classroom!
