One thing that doesn’t change is that there will be change after a General Assembly.
A change taking place is career missionaries and regional superintendent of the Middle East/president of European Theological Seminary in Germany, Paul and Gabi Schmidgall will be heading to a another familiar venue of service.
Paul affirmatively stated: “ETS was our life, love, and home! Together with a wonderful community of students and amazing faculty and staff, we had a great opportunity to serve our Lord.”
Closing this chapter of their lives, Paul and Gabi are turning the page, and going back to Jerusalem, where their missionary journey of service began. They will be involved at the Ministry Center on the Mount of Olives.
At ETS, Field Director Dr. Stephen Darnell will be interim president, along with his wife, Janice, as general manager. Dr. Tom Rosson will serve as vice-president, and Dr. Blayne Waltrip as interim vice-president of external studies.
The Schmidgalls’ desire is that God bless and use the new leadership so that ETS can experience a very special time of blessings!
