About Dr. Molitor

Dr. Paul Molitor came to Maranatha in the fall of 2007. He was saved in his early 20s and grew in his faith while attending Bible Baptist Church in Brookings, South Dakota. His wife, Anne, is an administrative assistant in the Nursing Department. The Molitors have three children—Gustaf, Genna, and Giordi.

Dr. Molitor came to Maranatha from Champaign, Illinois, where he was employed in three unique positions. He worked as a spectroscopist for the School of Chemical Sciences at the University of Illinois, where he maintained, operated and trained others in the use of the device used to measure chemical structure. He was also a chemistry instructor at Parkland College and a product quality control tester at Protasis/MRM, which manufactures magnetic resonance microsensors. Dr. Molitor previously taught at the College of St. Mary, Creighton, and South Dakota State.

What Dr. Molitor loves about teaching at Maranatha

“The ministry of Maranatha is important and making a difference for the Lord. Contributing to that work is fulfilling. There are many examples of prominent scientists who were also Christians, and understanding that is important. My desire is to show students the benefits and importance of studying how God’s creation works.”


Dr. Molitor and his wife are members of Calvary Baptist Church in Watertown. Dr. Molitor has been active in teaching Sunday school, driving a van, and helping with Truth Trackers Bible club.
