LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Albert Mohler was just 33 years old when he took over as president of Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville in 1993.
Since then, Mohler has restored the Southern Baptist Convention’s flagship school to more conservative beliefs even though it was at the cost of getting rid of some faculty.
He marked his 20 years at Southern at a recent convocation that started another academic year. Mohler expressed satisfaction with the results of the transformation on campus. The enrollment, budget and endowment program have all grown.
Mohler says the seminary’s current prosperity is a sign of God’s blessing on an institution that rejected liberal trends in society and returned to more conservative social ideas.
