SEMINARY ANNOUNCES NEW DEAN, WELCOMES NEW TRUSTEES

 

The Rev. Jeffrey W. Monroe, President of the Logos House of Theological Studies, has announced that the Very Rev. Alexander Henderson Webb, DM, has been approved by the Board of Trustees as the Academic Dean of the seminary. Dr. Webb was approved at the Board of Trustees meeting on July 15th in Ellsworth and will report to the President of the Seminary.

Dr. Webb brings a strong academic background to the position. Dr. Webb has an earned Doctor of Ministry in Marriage and Family Counseling from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, and did Doctoral level studies in Clinical Psychology at Antioch New England Graduate School where he also received a Master of Arts in Counseling Psychology. He received his Master of Divinity at the General Theological Seminary in New York and has a Bachelor of Arts degree from Amherst College. He has over 35 years experience as a priest and served numerous parishes in the Anglican Church. He is currently a Dean in the Diocese of the Northeast (DNE) of the Anglican Church in America, Chairman of the Board of Examining Chaplains of the DNE and Rector of St. Luke's Anglican Church in Amherst NH. He also serves on the Executive Council of the Anglican Church in America. Dr. Webb was selected from among several highly qualified candidates for the position. His primary near term objectives will be a review of the Academic programs offered by the Seminary, expansion of the faculty and care of the Seminary's wide range of national and international students.

 

The Board of Trustees also welcomed two new members to the Board, Dr. Richard Legault and Mr. Peter Thomas. Dr. Legualt served in the UMASS system and brings extensive business and academic expertise to the Board. Mr. Thomas is a government affairs consultant and previously served as an Under Secretary of Agriculture under President Reagan.

"I am very pleased to have Dr. Webb join the professional staff of the Seminary and welcome these two new outstanding additions to our Board," said Fr. Monroe. "These gentlemen will all bring a great deal of talent to the Seminary and we are thankful for their dedication and willingness to serve."

 

Logos House is an independent institution affiliated with the Anglican Church in America (ACA), and under the patronage of the Traditional Anglican Communion.

The seminary currently educates students from multiple continuing Anglican Church jurisdictions and several nations outside of North America including the Philippines. The administrative center and library are currently located in Ellsworth, Maine and programs are built around the Oxford Tutorial Model, based on remote learning and distance education. The program is geared to men who are in secular employment, and have experienced the call to part-time or full-time Ministry in the Church. The Seminary also educates persons in lay ministries and women in its Deaconess program. The Seminary offers an Associate, Bachelor, Master or Doctoral Degree in Sacred Theology and Certifications in Lay Ministries, Sub-Deacon and Diaconal Studies as well as Priesthood, Chaplain and Anglican Studies.
