New U.S. Missions
joins BOD

McGee receives
SPS Lifetime Achievement Award
Students experience Holy Land on AGTS study tour

Dr. Winston K. Larry, AG U.S. Missions administrator, joined the AGTS Board of Directors in November 2007.

Prior to assuming his current position in March, Dr. Larry had served for 16 years as senior pastor of New Covenant Assembly in Gary, Indiana. He has a D.Min. in counseling and psychology and has been a licensed and practicing psychotherapist for 22 years in Indiana.

His wife, Marilyn, a licensed minister, earned an M.A. from AGTS in 1989.

The Society for Pentecostal Studies (SPS) honoredGary B. McGee, distinguished professor of church history and Pentecostal studies, with its Lifetime Achievement Award in March.

McGee is recognized broadly for his scholarly contributions to Pentecostal studies. A prolific author, he is a frequent lecturer with the Overseas Ministries Study Center at Yale University and is an associate editor for the International Bulletin of Missionary Research.

In addition, McGee recently was elected as an officer in the American Missiological Society.

Dr. Deborah Gill (M.Div. 1979) led 27 AGTS students on a three-week study tour of Israel in May.

“This trip was personally transforming. I will never view the Scriptures, my life, or ministry the same.” —Brad Kesler (M.Div. student)

“This tour has given me another tool for exegeting Scripture.” —Sean Silverii (M.A. 2008)

Dr. George Wood, AGTS Board of Directors (BOD) chair, and the AGTS BOD secured funding to provide each student with a $1500 scholarship toward the cost of the first of these annual events.
