JACKSON, Tenn. — Union University President David S. Dockery will assume the leadership of Trinity Evangelical Divinity School in Deerfield, Ill., one of four schools comprising Trinity International University, after the institution’s board of regents unanimously elected him as president Feb. 28.
“David Dockery is truly an evangelical statesperson,” said John D. Woodbridge, research professor of church history and the history of Christian thought at Trinity. “He is one of the most respected Christian educators, authors, theologians and biblical scholars in the United States.”
In January 2013, Dockery announced his intention to transition out of the presidency of Union, a position he has held for nearly 18 years. Union trustees elected Dub Oliver as Dockery’s successor Feb. 10. Dockery will officially assume the Trinity presidency June 1 after the Evangelical Free Church of America’s board of directors approves his appointment.
