Faith and Leadership, a resource from Leadership Education at Duke Divinity, has published three great stories in the last several months featuring leaders in theological education. The articles offer insights into some of the innovative ways that theological educators are serving the church and changing the landscape of theological education.

The most recent article, “Kent Anderson: A mastery model for theological education,” features an interview with Kent Anderson, president of Northwest Baptist Seminary in Vancouver. In it, Dr. Anderson discusses his seminary's new Immerse program, a “reverse-engineered” Master of Divinity.

Originally published in August, “Molly T. Marshall: Creativity, risk taking, and seminary leadership” begins with a brief history of Dr. Marshall’s presidency at Central Baptist Theological Seminary, as well as an interview with her about her leadership and the state of theological education.

From earlier this summer, “Terry C. Muck: Seminary professors are servants of the church,” features an interview with Louisville Institute’s former executive director, Terry Muck. Dr. Muck discusses his research with theological educators and the service they perform for the church.
