Dr. Mark Dalbey, a former professor at Geneva College, was appointed the Interim President at Covenant Theological Seminary in St. Louis, MO, on June 1, 2012. Dalbey was Geneva’s Assistant Dean of Religious Services from 1977 to 1984, and Instructor in Bible from 1979 until 1984. He has taught at Covenant since 1999 as the Assistant Professor of Practical Theology.
“As I take on the role of Interim President on June 1, I am confident that the Lord will continue to bless and use Covenant Seminary for his purposes as he does his ever-deepening, dynamic, and ongoing work of gospel transformation in a time of transition,” Dalbey stated in a letter on the seminary’s website. “We rest secure in the knowledge that God is present here and working mightily to build his Kingdom by preparing new leaders for his church, and that he continues to unfold progressively his glorious story of redemption across generations and geography, and into all of life.”
