Clark to cultivate congregational relationships for the benefit of the Seminary’s Annual Fund
Greg Clark has been named director of Seminary relations at Louisville Presbyterian Theological Seminary. He will join the Seminary on July 1, 2013.
"Greg brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the Institutional Advancement department,” said Vice President for Institutional Advancement Linda Medley. “We are thrilled to bring him on board, and I have every confidence he will quickly become an essential part of the team.”
Clark has more than 20 years of experience in public affairs, government relations and fundraising. Previous positions have included leading lobbying and communication efforts for public sector funding at the state and local levels for the Kentucky Center for the Arts. He also served as finance director to five political candidates over an eight-year period and managed and supervised a program and teaching staff who taught English as a second language in Saudi Arabia. Greg’s personal interests include reading, watching films and spending time with friends.
“I am honored to join Louisville Seminary. I personally appreciate and embrace the importance of spirituality in the lives of individuals,” said Clark. “The Seminary not only acts as a catalyst to provide spirituality for people through the Christian faith but indentifies and empowers uniquely qualified students to become deliverers of this message. To be part of this organization and its mission is truly humbling for me.”
Clark joins the Seminary during an important time. In 2011, the Seminary announced a bold new strategic plan, Covenant for the Future, which calls for tuition-free education for students starting in 2015, expanding efforts to prepare students for a diverse world through its Doors to Dialogue and Black Church Studies programs, and capital improvements for student housing and information technology.
About ‘Covenant for the Future,’ Louisville Seminary’s strategic plan
Louisville Seminary's 'Covenant for the Future' seeks to eliminate seminary tuition debt, which is a persistent problem among seminary graduates across the nation. Because they will not be burdened by seminary debt, our graduates will be free to go wherever God calls them when they graduate. They may be called to lead a congregation, to develop a new church, to establish a nontraditional worshiping community, to serve as a marriage and family therapist or a hospital chaplain or to create an as-yet-unimagined position as servant and leader for the world.
