Join us as we celebrate Drs. Philip and Elaine Amerson and their years of ministry and service to the church and the academy.

Since June 2006, Philip A. Amerson has faithfully and honorably served as President of Garrett-Evangelical. Since then, President Amerson has provided leadership during exciting and challenging days, and has brought imagination and tireless commitment to theological education at the school, the national church, and beyond. Among the significant achievements during this time, President Amerson saw enrollments increase by over twenty percent, led a major renovation of campus facilities and worked to double the capital campaign gifts and pledges, surpassing $75 million of the $100 million goal. Under his leadership, Garrett-Evangelical emphasized hospitality and sustainability, added faculty positions in Wesley and United Methodist Studies, Global Christianity and World Religions, and supported the establishment of the Rueben Job Chair in Spiritual Formation. During this time a renewed emphasis was given to strengthening the Center for the Church and the Black Experience and broadening the school’s reach through online learning.

In honor of President Amerson's years of service and upcoming retirement, Garrett-Evangelical is pleased to host a two-day event October 23 and 24, 2013 that will include conversations on church and theological education, worship, and a concert featuring special guests. Use the tabs below to learn more and register. We hope that you will join us in celebrating President Amerson's ministry and service to Garrett-Evangelical, the Church, the academy, and the world.
