Effective November 1, 2013, Criswell College President Dr. Jerry A. Johnson will become President and CEO of the National Religious Broadcasters (NRB). While addressing the Criswell College family, Dr. Johnson said, “I still believe in Criswell College and what it means to be a Criswell man. Being a Criswell kind of person has always meant going when you believe God says go, and going where God says to go, wherever that may be. I believe it is the NRB at this time.”
On October 3, 2013, the Board of Trustees appointed a seven-member search committee. Dr. Jim Richards, Executive Director of the Southern Baptists of Texas Convention, was appointed chairman. While the Criswell College family will miss Dr. Johnson dearly, we are excited to see God work in the selection of our next president. Dr. Jimmy Draper will serve as Interim President during this time.
Along with Dr. Richards, the search committee consists of John Mann, Jack Pogue, Joshua Crutchfield, Andrew Hebert, David Galvan, and Keet Lewis.
Prayers are appreciated as we seek God’s will for the future of the college.
