AGTS Appoints New Academic Dean

Dr. Joseph L. Castleberry has been appointed by the board of directors of AGTS to be the new academic dean beginning January 2003. An installation service for the new academic dean will be held on Wednesday, January 22, 2003 at 11:00 a.m. in the William J. Seymour Chapel at AGTS.

Hear or read Dr. Castleberry's installation address, "The Shrewd Manager and AGTS."

He has been a missionary under appointment with Assemblies of God World Missions since 1988 serving in El Salvador and Ecuador. Throughout his missionary career Castleberry has divided his efforts between church planting and theological education. He recently established the first Evangelical church among the previously unreached descendants of African slaves of the Chota Valley, Ecuador.

In addition, Dr. Castleberry has served as academic vice president for the AG Biblical Seminary in Quito, Ecuador (1997-2001). He also was associate dean for curriculum Development at Global University, School of Graduate Studies (1993-97). He was also associate dean for Latin America, Global University of the AG, School of Bible and Theology (1993-1994). While serving in El Salvador he taught on the Biblical Studies and Theology Faculty at Assemblies of God Christian University and at Bethel Bible Institute.

Castleberry received a B.A. from Evangel University in 1983. His M.Div. is from Princeton Theological Seminary and his Ed.D. in International Educational Development is from Columbia University in New York City. Dr. Castleberry is married to Kathleen. They have three daughters, Jessica, Jodi, and Sophie.

We welcome the Castleberry's to the AGTS community.
