Jeremy Pierre to Lead Billy Graham School of Missions, Evangelism, and Ministry at Southern Baptist Theological Seminary

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (BP) — Jeremy Pierre has seen Southern Seminary from virtually every side.

Pierre moved to Louisville from his native Cleveland, Ohio, in 2002 and enrolled as a Master of Divinity student. Soon, the seminary hired Pierre to establish a new writing center and in the two decades since, he has compiled a vast and varied ministry resume, one that reflects faithfulness to God’s call; after finishing his MDiv, Pierre completed a PhD in biblical counseling and systematic theology and served as instructor of English composition and instructor of literature and culture at Boyce College.

Since 2011, Pierre has been the Lawrence and Charlotte Hoover Professor of Biblical Counseling at the seminary, and from 2013 to 2018, he was dean of students for the seminary.

Now, he is stepping into another important role at Southern: President Albert Mohler this week announced the appointment of Pierre as the sixth dean of the Billy Graham School of Missions, Evangelism, and Ministry. He replaces Paul Akin, who was named SBTS provost in June.

“Jeremy Pierre is simply outstanding,” Mohler said. “He is a man of great strengths, clear conviction, and tremendous pastoral experience. He is among the most influential figures in biblical counseling and a colleague greatly admired by this faculty. I am incredibly pleased that he will serve the Billy Graham School as dean.”
