Church of Christ minister named dean of Yale Divinity School



A Church of Christ minister will serve as the next dean of Yale Divinity School.

Greg Sterling

Gregory E. Sterling, dean of the Graduate School of the University of Notre Dame, will assume his new role this summer, according to a Yale news release.
Like his father before him, Sterling preaches for Churches of Christ, notes a Yale feature story.
“I last served the Warsaw Church of Christ (in Indiana) for 16-and-a-half years as the minister,” Sterling said in an e-mail to The Christian Chronicle. “I stepped down as a result of my deanship here.”

    This is great news. My congratulations to Greg–a top flight scholar and a prince of a guy!

    This is great news, but wouldn’t it have been great if he declined this prestigious job, and said, “Jesus would have never taken this job, because he would have preferred being with the little ones.”

    Terry Hays,
    Or perhaps he is taking Paul’s approach of “appealing to Caesar” and using his position to influence a large base of people for Jesus. He has the opportunity to touch so many lives on a campus like Yale. Greg, congratulations…this is awesome!

    IT would seem to be a big step down to go to a dean of a secular organization from being a minister of Jesus Christ. There is no higher calling than to be a minister of Christ.
    What does the faculty at Yale divinity school teach? The truth? I doubt that very much. Can he represent the truth there? Lets all hope so.
