from the Interim Academic Dean
a note to express my deep gratitude to the AGTS family for allowing me the privilege of
serving as Interim Academic Dean for the fall term. I have been greatly enriched by your
graciousness and willingness to accept a novice.
We all look back with highest admiration for the sterling work of Edgar
Lee and ahead to the arrival of our new dean, Joseph Castleberry. He will bring incredible
gifts to this significant office.
It will continue to be my joy to serve as an adjunct professor and as a
member of the Seminary Board of Directors. I feel honored for the privilege.
