JACKSON, Tenn. – Oct. 14, 2002 – Union University President David S. Dockery has been appointed to the Board of Directors for Christianity Today International. Dockery was nominated by Christianity Today publisher and president, Harold Myra, and unanimously elected by the board.
One of the most influential groups of Christian leaders in the country, the eighteen member board includes Billy Graham, Jay Kesler, chancellor of Taylor University, Gene Habecker, president of the American Bible Society, Pete Hammond of InterVarsity Christian Fellowship, and other significant Christian leaders.
The Christianity Today International board oversees the work of eleven different publications including Christianity Today, Campus Life, Leadership, Books and Culture, Today’s Christian Woman, and others.
“This is a wonderful privilege for which I am quite humbled,” said Dockery. “I will look forward to this challenging opportunity.” A prolific author, he has served as a consulting editor for Christianity Today for the past decade.
“David Dockery’s appointment to the Board of CT is wonderful for Union and the expanding visibility of the university,” said Sam Shaw, vice chairman of the Union University Board of trustees. “His commitment to a God-centered world-view, his wide knowledge of evangelical life, and the skill of his pen will enable him to exert a wise and wide-ranging influence for the kingdom of God.”
