Biographical Information

Daniel Johannes Theron was born on February 24, 1920, in Senekal, Orange Free State, Union of South Africa. After becoming a member of the Dutch Reformed Church in Greylingstad in 1938, he entered the University of Pretoria. At Pretoria, he attained a Bachelor of Arts (Greek/Sociology) in 1941, a Bachelor of Divinity in 1944, and a Masters of Arts (Classics) in 1945. Theron then moved to the United States, where he attended Princeton Theological Seminary from 1946 to 1950, earning a Th.D in 1950.

He served as youth minister at the South Park Presbyterian Church, Newark, New Jersey, from 1948-1949, and was ordained a Presbyterian minister by the Presbytery of Newark, New Jersey, in February, 1952.

While attending the University of Pretoria, Theron was a student lecturer in the classics in 1945. He was also a teaching fellow in New Testament at Princeton Seminary from 1946-1948. In 1949, Theron became an Instructor in New Testament at Princeton Seminary, advancing to Assistant Professor in New Testament in 1952, where he remained until 1958.

Theron left teaching and moved to Connecticut in 1959, entered the business world, and became Vice President of Investments for Paine Webber Incorporated in Hartford, CT. While in Connecticut, he created and managed the Theron/Niholonge Fund, which provided scholarships for black theological students in the Republic of South Africa.

Upon retiring from Paine Webber in 1992, Theron and his wife Jerry moved to Hendersonville, North Carolina, where he remains active in civic and public affairs. He is a long-standing volunteer in Civitan International, an organization whose motto is "builders of good citizenship." Theron also remains a prolific writer as well as a frequent contributor to the opinions section of the local newspaper.
