BTS formally celebrated the Inauguration of Dr. Frank A. James, III on Thursday, March 27, 2014. Founding and current faculty members, board members, special guests, ministry leaders, staff members, and friends joined together to honor, challenge, and commission Frank for the work to which the Lord has called him—the work Frank described as “Leadership on the New Frontier.”

Andy Crouch, executive editor of Christianity Today, charged Frank to embrace his role and provide Christian leadership in the seminary, local community, and world. With Dr. Charles Zimmerman serving as emcee, the evening featured a number of other special guests, including:

  • Dr. George Murray, Chancellor of Columbia International University and son of BTS Founder Dr. Jack Murray,
  • Rev. Nan Clarke, Associate Pastor of Ardmore Presbyterian Church and BTS Board Member,
  • Pastor Rachel Sutliff, Associate Pastor of Vineyard Community Church West Philly,
  • Mr. Philip A. Clemens, CEO of Clemens Family Corporation,
  • Korean Student Fellowship Worship Team,
  • Dr. Robert C. Newman, Professor Emeritus and a Founding Faculty Member, and
  • Dr. Dan K. Williams, Director of Urban Programs at BTS.

The evening culminated with a Prayer of Commissioning by the board of trustees and a choral celebration by New Life Voices of Worship.
