Join us for the Excellence in Theological Education Awards
February 15, 2018 by Lee Hinson-Hasty
Each General Assembly, the Excellence in Theological Education Awards honor outstanding Presbyterian leaders who have had an impact on theological education. In some cases, a single person is chosen, and in other years, two people are selected.
This year’s honorees have not been chosen yet – but are expected to be announced very soon. If you plan to attend General Assembly, please plan to join us for the Theological Education Breakfast, which is set for June 21, 7:00 a.m. You can sign up for the breakfast when you register for General Assembly. Registration opens February 27.
The leaders are selected by the Committee on Theological Education, which meets Feb. 21 to 23 at Union Seminary in Richmond, Va., this year.
If you look through the names of those chosen for this recognition in the past, you’ll see lots of great and probably familiar names in theological education. We anticipate that this year’s honorees will be no exception.
Join us – and know that you will be in excellent company at every table and at the podium.

More about the Committee on Theological Education
The Committee on Theological Education (COTE) has General Assembly responsibility to serve as a two-way communication link between the denomination and its graduate theological institutions in order to strengthen them for their mission to the whole church. COTE seeks to envision and foster partnerships and new initiatives for the benefit of the PC(USA), other governing councils, and our Presbyterian seminaries. COTE serves as an advocate for theological education, seeking to support our Presbyterian seminaries through the Theological Education Fund, which is housed at the Presbyterian Foundation.
