A presidential search committee has been formed by the Board of Trustees of Lexington Theological Seminary to select a replacement for retiring President James Johnson. Johnson, 71, guided LTS through an innovative transitional period, and will step down at the end of 2011. He noted that Lexington Theological alumni, faculty and students had enthusiastically embraced the seminary’s shift toward greater use of distance learning.
Johnson “brought the right gifts at the right time and moved us through an historical transitional period,” said Gary Kidwell, chair of the LTS Board of Trustees. “The Seminary is now positioned to serve a new generation of students preparing for ministry. The Seminary – indeed, the whole church – is deeply grateful for Dr. Johnson’s strong visionary leadership. He will be greatly missed.” For more, see:
