The President's Welcome


Dr. Lillback

September 2010

Dear Friends and Family,

Westminster’s new academic year is off and running. We’ve just welcomed over 145 new students to campus. At convocation we heard our newest professor Rev. Dr. Gregory K. Beale deliver the opening message that called us to personal and theological faith fullness in our age of confusion.

We are pleased that Professor Beale has joined the Westminster faculty as Professor of New Testament and Biblical Theology and began teaching this academic year (2010-2011).

Please keep Westminster, our students, staff, faculty and board, in your prayers as all of us strive to do all things to God’s glory.

Among the new developments that we’ve experienced at the Seminary this last year are:

1.    a conference on Science and Theology (March 2010)
2.    a symposium on Business Ethics (June 2010)
3.    the distribution of Professor Vern Poythress’s ground-breaking work Redeeming Science to some 15,000 science teachers and students across the U.S.
4.    the granting of four Huff Scholarships on science and theology.

In the coming weeks we’ll be announcing plans for our Preaching Conference (October 26th – 27th) and a Reformation Tour led by Rev. Dr. Carl R. Trueman and me this coming June and July.

Your goodwill and support are most deeply appreciated. Please continue to visit our website, and if possible, visit us on campus.

In Christ’s service,

Peter A. Lillback
President
