From the President:
This week, the College announced that it has completed its search for a new provost. Starting in January of 2013, Dr. David Newton, a King's alumnus and enterpreneur, will join King's. His resume is robust, his faith is vibrant, and I am looking forward to having him on the team.
Our faculty continue to engage thoughtfully in the marketplace of ideas. Dr. Joseph Loconte was featured on 'The Cycle', an MSNBC show co-hosted by self-described atheist SE Cupp.
Another King's faculty member, Professor Brian Brenberg, gave an interview in Comment magazine on why economics is important for Christians to understand. Additionally, Dr. Anthony Bradley was featured in Black Enterprise online magazine for his career training the next generation of faithful professionals.
Please take a moment to see the articles below, and please stay in prayer for the College as we transition to the new campus downtown.

Economists and Table Servers
Brian Brenberg was recently interviewed in Comment magazine.
"When I ask my new students what the Bible says about economics, they usually answer that we should help the poor and be honest. That's true. That's also an incomplete and rather boring way to think about economics, which is probably why most young Christians don't aspire to be economists. I want my students to see that if economics is part of God's creation, then he has much more to say about it than we think. And that means we have much more to learn."
