Land to lead Southern Evangelical Seminary comment (0)

April 25, 2013

NASHVILLE — Richard Land, president of the Southern Baptist Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission (ERLC), confirmed to Baptist Press on April 11 that he has been selected as president of Southern Evangelical Seminary.

The seminary, based in Charlotte, N.C., was co-founded in 1992 by Norman Geisler, longtime seminary professor and apologist, and Ross Rhoads, former evangelist and then-pastor of Calvary Church, Charlotte.

Land’s selection was tweeted by Geisler on April 11: “I wish to commend the Board of Southern Evangelical Seminary for its excellent choice of a new president Dr. Richard Land.”

Land, 66, announced his retirement from the ERLC on July 31, 2012. At the time, he scheduled his retirement to be effective Oct. 23, 2013 — 25 years from the date he assumed the ERLC’s presidency in 1988. ERLC trustees, on March 26, elected Russell Moore as the Southern Baptist Convention entity’s new president, to be effective June 1. Moore, 41, currently is dean of the school of theology and senior vice president for academic administration at Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Ky.
