Dr. Timothy George

Dr. Timothy George is the founding dean of Beeson Divinity School in Birmingham, Ala., where he has been instrumental in shaping the school’s character and mission as an administrator and instructor. Dr. George is also the board chair of the Colson Center for Christian Worldview and the Doctrine and Christian Unity Commission of the Baptist World Alliance, and he is a life advisory trustee of Wheaton College. Dr. George serves as general editor of the Reformation Commentary on Scripture, a 28-volume series of 16-century exegetical comment, and has authored more than 20 books. Among them is Theology of the Reformers, a standard textbook on Reformation theology that is used many schools and seminaries and has been translated into various languages. An ordained Southern Baptist minister, Dr. George and his wife, Denise, have two adult children.

Luncheon Speaker

Dr. Jerry Cain

The luncheon speaker will be Dr. Jerry Cain. Dr. Jerry Cain remains a beloved presence on our campus. The fifth president since Judson moved to this Elgin location in 1963, Dr. Cain was instrumental in ushering in the era that moved Judson from being a college to it becoming a respected, accredited university. Among his greatest achievements was also the construction of the Harm A. Weber Academic Center. Yet, after devoting 16 years of his life to the leadership mission of this great institution, Dr. Cain retired in 2011. Now, as the ongoing Chancellor for Judson, he continues to tour and educate others about the life and legacy of our great founder, Adoniram Judson. Please help us in warmly welcoming Dr. Cain back home.
