Bruce Ashford to be Dean of College at Southeastern

I just received word that Dr. Bruce Ashford will be the new dean of the College at Southeastern effective Jan. 1, 2009.  Ashford has been serving as director of the Center for Great Commission Studies at Southeastern Seminary since 2005 and teaches courses in theology, philosophy, and missions. He is an active member of Summit Church in Durham, speaks at churches and in other venues all over our Convention, and blogs at the best SBC blog–Between the Times.  Ashford has been a vocal proponent of a Great Commission Resurgence (GCR) in the SBC in his teaching, speaking, and blogging, and I consider him to be the kind of leader we need in our Convention as a man who exemplifies the wedding of piety, doctrine, and practice.

I had the privilege of recently spending time with Dr. Ashford in my visit to Southeastern Seminary and was greatly encouraged to learn of where Ashford has been, what he is doing, and (now) how he is going to lead the College at Southeastern.  Once again, SEBTS, under the leadership of Dr. Akin, continues to chart the gospel-driven course with the right kind of men not only for the time being but for years to come.
