Southeastern to recommend Akin for presidency comment (0)

January 1, 2004

WAKE FOREST, N.C. — Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary’s presidential search committee will recommend to the board of trustees the election of Daniel L. Akin as the seminary’s sixth president.

The board will meet in special session Jan. 15 at 2 p.m. at the school’s Wake Forest, N.C., campus to vote on Akin.

“Dr. Akin is a man with great vision, keen insight and spiritual understanding,” said Timothy D. Lewis, chairman of the search committee as well as the head of Southeastern’s board of trustees. “His enthusiasm is contagious and genuine.”

Akin, 46, is currently the vice president for academic administration/dean of the school of theology at Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Ky. He has connections to Southeastern, as he was professor of theology, dean of students and vice president for student services at Southeastern 1992–96.

Akin holds a master of divinity degree from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Fort Worth, Texas. He received his Ph.D. from the University of Texas at Arlington and his bachelor of arts degree from Criswell College in Dallas.
