Dr. McMaken joined the Department of Religion at Lindenwood University in 2011. In addition to his teaching, advising, and curricular responsibilities with the department, he advises the Lindenwood Delta Tau Delta colony and serves on the Humanities Research Committee.

As a systematic theologian within the Reformed branch of the Christian tradition, McMaken specializes in sacramental theology in general, baptism in particular, the work of Karl Barth, and other figures such as John Calvin, Thomas F. Torrance, Helmut Gollwitzer, Augustine of Hippo, and the Cappadocian fathers.
Dr. McMaken also chairs the General Studies department.
