Mississippi College

Lewis Oswalt

Welcome to my home page.  It has been my pleasure to be a part of the MC faculty since 1989, teaching courses in music theory, church music, and music history.

About Me

I am a native of Hammond, Louisiana, and a 1975 graduate of Mississippi College.  Following a year of graduate study at the University of Southern Mississippi, I was employed as a church musician for several years.

I went back to school in 1984 at New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary, and joined the MC faculty in 1989.  I completed my doctoral work in 1991.

My wife and I reside in Clinton and are the parents of three children.  My hobbies include outdoor activities such as hiking, running, kayaking, and cycling.  I am radio announcer for Clinton High football and public address announcer for various high school and college sporting events.

I am currently working with the music ministry of Trinity Presbyterian Church, Jackson.
