Bexley Seabury announces search for its next president

Bexley Seabury announces search for its next president

Bexley Seabury, an Episcopal seminary, has announced the retirement next year of its president, the Rev. Dr Roger Ferlo, and the launch of its search for his successor. A press release states:

Since Ferlo joined Bexley Seabury, in March 2012, the seminary has introduced a series of operational and curriculum changes toward fulfilling its vision “to be a 21st century seminary beyond walls—open to all who seek to deepen their Christian formation in a generous spiritual and intellectual tradition.” Changes under Ferlo’s leadership include a more diverse faculty and student body; consolidated operations in Chicago’s historic Hyde Park/Woodlawn district; a new low-residency Master of Divinity program that incorporates a new model for spiritual formation through internships in students’ local communities that are designed and supervised in collaboration with Episcopal dioceses; and increased enrollment, currently 76 degree and diploma students.

“President Ferlo has led Bexley Seabury with equal measures of imagination and pragmatism,” said Board of Directors Chair the Rt. Rev. W. Michie Klusmeyer. “I believe the Ferlo era at Bexley Seabury will be remembered as a period of innovation and restoration that laid a firm foundation for the seminary’s next phase of service to the church.”

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
