MEMPHIS, Tenn. (BP)—Just days after announcing his departure from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, David Allen has announced he is joining Mid-America Baptist Theological Seminary.
Allen made the announcement on Twitter saying he was “delighted to announce that today I begin serving as the Distinguished Visiting Professor of Practical Theology and Dean of the Adrian Rogers Center for Preaching @MABTS! I will teach DMIN & PHD students this academic year…”
Seminary president Michael Spradlin noted “Allen and Mid-America have essentially been on the same track since each of us began our ministries in the 70s. Both have majored on the importance of expository preaching that brings the text to life, and both have been training preachers to preach, teach, and reach the world for Jesus’ sake. We are honored and excited to have such a distinguished educator and preacher joining our faculty.”
The school celebrates its 50th anniversary this fall.
