I forgot to mention this the other day when “Between the Times” made the announcement, but let me publicly join the chorus of those congratulating Dr. Greg Welty for his appointment to Associate Professor of Philosophy at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary. Here is the paragraph from Between the Times:
“We at BtT would like to welcome Drs. Michael Travers and Greg Welty to the faculty at Southeastern. . . . Dr. Welty has been appointed to the faculty as Associate Professor of Philosophy at Southeastern. Dr. Welty comes to our campus from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, where he has served as Assistant Professor of Philosophy. Dr. Welty comes with a credibly furrowed brow, as he completed his B. A. in Philosophy from UCLA, his M. Div. from Westminster Theological Seminary, and his M. Phil. and D. Phil. from University of Oxford.”
Southeastern will be incredibly blessed by this man of “credibly furrowed brow.” I’ve known Dr. Welty for the past 15 years and can say that he is not only a lucid thinker and communicator, but also a man marked by faithfulness–to God, to family, to the Lord’s church. It will be a great loss to Southwestern Seminary, but there are bright days ahead for Southeastern. So, congratulations to Greg Welty and to SEBTS!
