Dr. Paul Kooistra Has Accepted the Position of President of Erskine

By Staff, Jul 18, 2014
Dr. Paul Kooistra, coordinator of Mission to the World (MTW) since 1994, has accepted a position as president of Erskine College and Theological Seminary. Dr. Kooistra informed our governing body, Committee on Mission to the World (CMTW), of his intent to transition out of his role here last fall.

Mission to the World is pleased that the Lord has led Dr. Kooistra to a challenging and kingdom-building ministry at Erskine, especially one that harkens to his past experience as president of Covenant Seminary. He has led MTW with grace, clarity, and a godly vision for the future and has prepared us well for the next phase of our history. We are thankful to the Lord for Dr. Kooistra’s service to the kingdom through his work at MTW.

Dr. Kooistra will continue to work with MTW until his successor is named.
