Director Joel Carpenter announces his retirement
Director Joel Carpenter has announced his intention to retire as director of the Nagel Institute for the Study of World Christianity as of September, 2018, pending a successful search for a successor. Joel has been the founder and first director for 12 years now and senses it is high time for a good, strong succession and new eyes on the horizon for the work here. Joel hopes to continue part-time to administer the African Theological Advance project, but will step back after that into an affiliated role, as a senior research fellow. So please look at the job profile and consider whether it might be for you, or whether there is someone you think might be a good candidate.
