Southeastern VP resigns; trustees OK budget
    May 17 2010 by press, staff and wire reports

    Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary is losing one of its vice presidents in June.

    In an e-mail sent to students April 28 Danny Akin president of Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary in Wake Forest announced that Allan Moseley is resigning as vice president for student services and dean of students effective June 1. 

    “Moseley has served with distinction in this position for 14 years and will be greatly missed from our Executive team,” Akin wrote.

    Moseley will stay on as a full-time professor of Old Testament and Hebrew. He is pastor at Christ Baptist Church in Raleigh. 

    Moseley was not the only administrator to resign recently.

    David Nelson, dean of the faculty at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary, announced his resignation Feb. 3, citing health reasons as his primary concern. Nelson, who also held the title of senior vice president of academic administration, has served on the faculty at Southeastern for more than a decade. He had served in the dean’s role for the past four years.

    Trustees approve budget
    Trustees of Southeastern elected four professors, added a degree program and approved a modest budget increase at their spring meeting April 12-13.

    Elected to the faculty were: Nathan Finn, assistant professor of church history and Baptist studies; Ed Gravely, assistant professor of biblical studies and history of ideas; George Robinson, assistant professor of missions and evangelism; and Heath Thomas, assistant professor of Old Testament and Hebrew.

    Trustees unanimously agreed to add a new Master of Arts in Philosophy of Religion to the school’s graduate curriculum.

    The 36-hour program will prepare students for doctoral work in philosophy, theology or missions.

    The program is designed for those who feel called to teach and write in a college, university or seminary setting.

    In his report, Akin told the board that Southeastern had the largest new student spring enrollment in the school’s history in 2010, with 290 new students coming to campus, and shared about recent mission trips.

    Trustees also approved a 2010-2011 budget of $20.7 million, a 2.7 percent increase from the previous year.

    Though poor economic conditions played a role in budget preparation, Ryan Hutchinson, senior vice president of business administration, reported that Southeastern avoided budget-related layoffs or salary cuts.

I wonder why, in such a short period of time (within the same year), there has been such turnover at the top of the organization chart? Drs. Nelson and Moseley are both two fine Christian gentlemen.
