Dr. Luis R. Rivera, academic dean and vice president for academic affairs at Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary, has been elected to the board of directors for In Trust Center for Theological Schools. The In Trust Center for Theological Schools is a membership organization incorporated and based in Delaware. Its members include more than 210 Catholic, Protestant, and Eastern Christian seminaries, divinity schools, and theological colleges in the United States and Canada.

Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary is delighted to welcome alumna Rev. Dr. Pamela Lightsey (G-ETS 2005) as visiting scholar in Spring 2018. A scholar, social justice activist, and military veteran, Lightsey will be teaching a course entitled “Queer Theology.” She says of the course, “What I love about teaching this course is the opportunity to explore who we are as sexual beings in relationship with an infinitely loving God.” Lightsey will also deliver a public lecture on March 20, 2018, titled “Pushing Limits on the Body.”
