Board of Trustees

McCormick Theological Seminary depends on the diversity, experience, and commitment of its Board of Trustees.

McCormick Theological Seminary depends on the diversity, experience, and commitment of its Board of Trustees.

The Board of Trustees is dynamic and actively engaged in the life of the Seminary. It meets three times each year to conduct Seminary business.

Trustees are pastors and lay church leaders, financial advisors, lawyers, and business owners, educators and authors from across the country. Collectively, they shape the identity and trajectory of the Seminary as it seeks to prepare women and men for Christian ministry that is cross-cultural, urban, Reformed and ecumenical. All share a passion for the educational mission to which Jesus Christ has called the McCormick community.
