Dean Search

  • Nashotah House Board selects firm to lead Dean search

    November 30, 2023 - The Nashotah House Board of Directors announces it has selected FaithSearch Partners, a national executive search firm for faith-based organizations, to provide support throughout the search process for the seminary’s next dean.

    FaithSearch Partners, based in Dallas, Texas, has previously supported institutions such as Fuller Theological Seminary, Dallas Theological Seminary, Reformed Theological Semi-nary, and Biola University in their executive leadership searches.

    “The Board selected FaithSearch Partners to assist us in our search based on their wide experience in higher education, including theological education, their commitment to prayer with and for Nashotah House during this search, and their specific insights into our needs as an institution,” said the Rev. Canon Edward Monk, Chair of the Nashotah House Board of Directors.

    Andrew Westmoreland, senior vice president with FSP, will assist Nashotah House with its dean search. With a career in higher education spanning more than four decades, Westmoreland previously served as president of Samford University and as chair of the board of trustees for the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges.

    The Nashotah House Board of Directors will solicit input from constituents in the Nashotah House community throughout its search and discernment process.

    Dr. Garwood Anderson announced in September his intention to retire from his role as dean of Nashotah House, effective June 1, 2024, to return to the classroom and biblical scholarship.
