The board of directors at Knox Theological Seminary in Fort Lauderdale is pleased to announce Dr. Scott Manor as the next seminary president. Manor will assume his new role July 1, 2019, at which time current president, Dr. Samuel Lamerson, will return to the classroom as Distinguished Professor of Biblical Studies.
Lamerson is a graduate of Knox’s first class and previously taught at Knox before being appointed president in 2014. When he approached the board about his desire to focus on teaching once again, an extensive search and selection process for his successor began. Following careful and prayerful consideration, Manor, who currently serves as Associate Professor of Historical Theology, Vice President of Academic Affairs and Dean of Faculty at Knox, was chosen.
“Dr. Lamerson has been an outstanding president,” said Dr. Steve Kitchens, Knox Board Chairman. “However, we want to support Dr. Lamerson’s desire to return to the classroom and believe Dr. Manor is now ready to assume his new role.”
Manor earned a B.A. in Philosophy from Covenant College, a M.A. in Exegetical Theology from Covenant Seminary, as well as a M.Th. and Ph.D. in Early Christianity at the University of Edinburgh, Scotland. He also held a post-doctoral position in research and language study at Instituit Catholique de Paris prior to joining Knox Seminary in 2012.
A Florida native, Manor lives in Fort Lauderdale with his wife Rebecca and their two young sons. He enjoys traveling, running, and watching Cardinals baseball in his spare time. www.knoxseminary.edu
