Andrew Graves

Steelman Library

Assistant Professor of Library Sciences


Masters in Divinity, Bethany Theological Seminary
Masters in Library Science, Emporia State University


Professor Andrew Graves was born in Clydebank, Scotland, where his father pastored. Later, when his father transitioned churches within the Wesleyan Reform Union, a branch of Methodism, the family moved to England. He lived in Bradford, West Yorkshire until moving to the States in 2000. He worked in management for one of the largest supermarket chains in the UK for eighteen years before following the call to Bible school at the Brownsville Revival in 2000, where he met his future wife and fellow professor at Southeastern, Annette Graves.

Professor Graves has been at Southeastern, working for Steelman Library and teaching, since 2012. He holds a Masters in Divinity from Bethany Theological Seminary (2012) and a Masters in Library Science from Emporia State University (2021). Together with his wife he has led several study abroad trips to England for Southeastern University and enjoys the hospitality involved in sharing his native country with students. He and his wife also led a teaching trip from Southeastern University to Nepal in 2017.

The Graves have five children. Two of those are Southeastern alumni. Their youngest daughter is married to Southeastern alumni Tori Rasmussen; the Rasmussens currently serve as long-term missionaries to Tanzania. Andrew is also part of an eldership team model at Heart of the Father ministries in Winter Haven and regularly teaches and preaches there. He enjoys reading, travelling, walking (not so much in Florida), and sports.
