Southern Baptist Seminary Faculty Members Christian George and David Sills Resign

Two Southern Baptist seminary faculty members have resigned their positions, vacating ministries that previously had placed them in the news.

The resignations of Christian George at Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary and David Sills at Southern Baptist Theological Seminary were reported by the Biblical Recorder, newsjournal of the Baptist State Convention of North Carolina, on June 4.

George, curator of Midwestern Seminary’s Spurgeon Library and its digitized Spurgeon Archive, had edited two volumes of previously unpublished sermons by Charles Spurgeon in a planned 12-volume series, “The Lost Sermons of C.H. Spurgeon,” published by the B&H Academic division of LifeWay Christian Resources of the Southern Baptist Convention.

Sills, professor of missions and cultural anthropology at Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, had been a member of the International Mission Board presidential search committee seeking a successor to David Platt, who is transitioning to a pastor-teacher role at McLean Bible Church in Northern Virginia.

George resigned on May 3 while Sills resigned on May 23, the Biblical Recorder reported. George’s resignation was “due to a personal moral failing,” Midwestern told the Recorder on June 1. For Sills, no reason for his resignation was stated by Southern.
