Dr. Pipa Begins Teaching Sabbatical

By grant of the Board of Trustees, Greenville Seminary President Dr. Joseph A. Pipa Jr. began a semester-long sabbatical from his teaching duties on July 1. Dr. Pipa will maintain his presidential administrative duties during the period, however. He will work on his Job sermon series and new course preparations.

During the past academic year, Dr. Pipa assumed an extra load of classes, closing gaps left following the departure of Dr. John Carrick from the faculty. The addition of new faculty will allow him to gain some needed rest. He will continue with international teaching and speaking engagements, including lectures in August at John Wycliffe Theological Seminary in Johannesburg, South Africa, which is entering into a cooperative relationship with GPTS.

Dr. Pipa will also spend time on materials for his own dedicated presence on the Web. His new web site debuted in late June at The new web site includes his writings, research, sermons, lecutures and more.
