I believe that, if Garrett-Evangelical understands itself, first and foremost, as servant to the church and to the world, then we will not stray far from God’s purpose for us. The church and the world are more desperate than ever for bold, spiritual leaders. My own personal call to service, along with my experience in the seminary for the last 27 years, have well prepared me to become that next president, who knows in her heart, that God does indeed have a purpose for our school. The question we must now answer is, “How can we best serve today’s church and today’s world?”

-President-Elect Lallene J. Rector
