LOUISVILLE, Ky. (BP)–Clark Logan has been appointed vice president for administration at Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Ky. Logan, who currently serves as Southern’s director of development, will assume his new duties March 1.
“Clark is a tremendously dedicated Christian leader who will bring great gifts and leadership to his new post,” Southern Seminary President R. Albert Mohler Jr. said. “[He] is well-qualified in every respect and is already committed to Southern Seminary and its standard of excellence.”
Logan, 37, is a graduate of Delta State University in Mississippi with undergraduate and graduate degrees in business administration. He also is a master of divinity graduate of Southern Seminary’s Billy Graham School of Missions, Evangelism and Church Growth and is seeking a doctor of education degree through the seminary.
“I am grateful for the faith that Dr. Mohler has shown in me,” Logan said. “I am honored and very excited for this opportunity to serve this great institution. But more than honored, I am humbled… I love this institution and understand the vital role Southern has in the training of ministers, and I want to do my best to help the institution thrive.”
“Clark knows the institution from a student’s perspective, from a recruiter’s perspective and from a donor’s perspective,” said Douglas Walker, the seminary’s senior vice president for institutional relations. “He will be mindful of what is best for students, faculty, staff, donors and alumni.”
Logan’s appointment is part of a transition process pointing toward the Aug. 1 retirement of T.J. McGlothlin, Southern’s senior vice president for institutional administration. At that time, Logan will assume that office.
“Mr. McGlothlin is a wonderful Christian gentleman. He is a man of integrity. He has given 40 years of loyal and dedicated service to this institution,” Logan said. “He is an example that I hope to emulate.”
McGlothlin, who has served Southern Seminary for more than 40 years, will continue in the part-time role of assistant to the president for planning.
“In this part-time arrangement, T.J. will continue to offer invaluable support and leadership in the accomplishment of the seminary’s campus master plan,” Mohler said.
Logan and his wife, Helen, have three sons. They are members of Highview Baptist Church in Louisville.
