Faithful to the mission

The trustees of the seminary made a bold move in the Spring of 1993 by hiring 33-year-old R. Albert Mohler, Jr., as the 9th President of the seminary. The hiring of Mohler was catalytic to the reclamation of the institution’s original mission. In the face of much scrutiny and significant opposition, Mohler convictionally and courageously led the institution to return to biblical fidelity and theological orthodoxy.

Rethinking missions and retirement

RICHMOND, Va. (BP) -- Baby Boomers -- those born between 1946 and 1964 -- are currently heading into retirement at an unprecedented rate. Data suggests that on average, 10,000 Baby Boomers retire every day. Recent research also suggests that the average Baby Boomer is expected to live at least until age 84. Couple those two realities together and what you have is a generation of people who are retiring and, on average, will live for nearly another 20 years. The implications of these truths are massive for Christians and churches and missions.
