|PRESIDENTIAL SEARCH UPDATE
Below is a message from
Acting Chairman of the Board, John Beckett, regarding the search for the
next president of The King’s College. Please continue praying, and if you
wish to be put on our prayer calendar, e-mail your name and desired dates to
"Now faith is the substance (realization) of things hoped for, the
evidence (confidence) of things not seen." Heb 11:1
I know we are all holding on in faith for our next president. Our
"confidence" is that God knows who He wants in this role even though we do
not, as yet, see it.
Though Bruce Dingman has considered many, met with several, and a few
have even come to visit the college, there is no one who is a clear choice.
Most commonly, those who could be strong candidates are deterred by
location, compensation or lack of alignment with their sense of where
they're being called. Many others simply don't have the needed vision or
skills for such a demanding assignment.
Still, we are pressing forward, with the reminder -- "it only takes one!"
I ask that we hold to our interview dates at the end of April. We will
advise in ample time if these dates need to be pushed out.
Thank you for remaining diligent in prayer as we rest in the sure
conviction that God knows our needs. "He is able."
John D. Beckett
