July 31, 2018

Our presidential search committee is delighted to share that we are continuing to make good progress on this important project.

We retained the consulting services of CarterBaldwin Executive Search Services out of Atlanta. CarterBaldwin has conducted searches for presidents for a broad range of Christian colleges, universities, seminaries and major non-profits. Dr. Debby White and Price Harding of CarterBaldwin were recently on our campus and met with members of the search committee and campus representatives to understand various perspectives regarding the kind of president for which we may be looking.

CarterBaldwin will be submitting a draft of the position profile to the search committee with the expectation that a public version will be available in the coming weeks. That position profile will be accessible on the Western website and will contain instructions for nominating or referring prospective candidates or for submitting an application.

These are exciting times for Western, and we look forward to updating our Western community as new information is available. We covet your prayers for God’s leadership on our committee and on this search process.
