Dallas C. Bivins was elected as the new director of Golden Gate Baptist Theological Seminary’s Arizona campus by Golden Gate Seminary trustees at their meeting in October. The announcement was delayed to facilitate Bivins’ transition from his current ministry role. Bivins assumes his position at Golden Gate on Dec. 31.
“We are delighted to bring Dallas Bivins home to Arizona,” said Jeff Iorg, seminary president. “We are thrilled someone with his experience and credentials will be leading the Arizona campus. Our partnership with Arizona Baptists is strong and we expect the campus to continue to fulfill our mutual vision of training leaders for Arizona churches.”
Bivins has two doctorates, including one from Golden Gate. He grew up in Arizona, has served in a variety of missions contexts and has significant experience as a ministry leadership coach.
David Johnson, former Arizona campus director and current Executive Director of the Arizona Southern Baptist Convention, agreed that Bivins will be a good fit. “I am excited about Dallas Bivins. He has all the ability, experience, and skills needed to lead the campus effectively and move it forward. I look forward to working with him and continuing the partnership with Golden Gate Seminary to shape leaders who will help us accomplish our vision of making disciples in Arizona and around the world.”
