Dr. Carl Trueman Resigns from Westminster Faculty

Dr. Carl Trueman has resigned as a faculty member of Westminster Theological Seminary. Beginning July 1, 2018, Dr. Trueman will serve at Grove City College in Grove City, PA, as a full-time professor in the department of biblical and religious studies.

Dr. Trueman has served since 2001 as professor of church history, and currently holds the Paul Woolley Chair of Church History at Westminster. Previously, Trueman also served as provost, vice president for academic affairs, and academic dean. He became an ordained minister in the Orthodox Presbyterian Church in 2010, and has served as pastor of Cornerstone Orthodox Presbyterian Church in Ambler, PA, since 2012.

While at Westminster, Dr. Trueman has written a variety of volumes including, among other titles, Reformation: Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow; Luther on the Christian Life: Cross and Freedom; John Owen: Reformed Catholic, Renaissance Man; and The Creedal Imperative. Dr. Trueman is also a regular contributor to First Things magazine and addresses contemporary topics such as identity politics and social mores.

Dr. Lillback, president and member of the church history department at Westminster, commented, “I have worked closely with Dr. Trueman for all of my years at Westminster, including five years when he served as our dean and then provost. I am thankful for his long service, diligence, and scholarship. It has been a privilege to labor with him through a time of theological debate to preserve the theological integrity of the seminary. I wish him well as he now plans to use his remarkable gifts in teaching and writing at Grove City College.”

Following 20 years of dedicated service to Westminster, we wish Dr. Trueman well in his new role at Grove City College, and are confident that he will serve in this new role with the same academic excellence with which he served the Westminster community.

Please keep Dr. Trueman and his family in your prayers during this time of transition.
