Craig Sider accepts position with the Center for Servant Leadership

GRANTHAM, Pa. (June 11, 2008) — Craig Sider, bishop of the Atlantic Conference and interim bishop of the Susquehanna Conference, has accepted a position as the part-time acting director of the Center for Servant Leadership, a project of Evangelical Theological Seminary (Myerstown, Pa.), effective August 1, 2008.

Craig, whose term as bishop of the Atlantic Conference will end August 1, agreed to an interim position with the Susquehanna Conference in April while bishop Ken Letner is on health leave. He will serve the Susquehanna Conference on a full-time basis until February 2009, the close of the interim period.

In addition, following the completion of his time at the Atlantic Conference, Craig will spend one day a week serving at the Center for Servant Leadership. Though the programs of the center are still under development, Craig’s work will involve partnership with Evangelical Theology administrators and professors.

Craig accepted the position after Evangelical Theological Seminary appointed Michael Sigman—the intended director of the leadership center—as acting president of Evangelical. Sigman replaces Dr. Dennis Hollinger, who accepted the presidency of Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary (South Hamilton, Mass.).
