(ALEXANDRIA, VA) – Virginia Theological Seminary (VTS) is pleased to announce the appointment of Elisabeth “Lisa” Kimball, Ph.D. to the position of vice president for Lifelong Learning, beginning July 1, 2022.
“Dr. Kimball is an extraordinary asset to the Seminary,” said the Very Rev. Ian S. Markham, Ph.D., dean and president of VTS. “She has attracted significant grant income that supports lay people, smaller congregations, and now, potentially, parenting and home formation. She oversees a vital part of the Seminary which engages with the cyber world and weaves together everything from the TryTank to Christian Formation. Literally, thousands of people are impacted by her hard work. We are deeply grateful for her witness and presence at Virginia Theological Seminary.”
Founded in 1823 as a beacon of hope in a country new and finding its way, Virginia Theological Seminary has led the way in forming leaders of the Episcopal Church, including the Most Rev. John E. Hines (VTS 1933, D.D. 1946), former presiding bishop of the Episcopal Church; the Rt. Rev. John T. Walker (VTS 1954, D.D. 1978), the first African-American bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Washington; and theologian, author and lay preacher Ms. Verna J. Dozier (VTS D.D. 1978). Serving the worldwide Anglican Communion, Virginia Theological Seminary educates approximately 25% of those being ordained who received residential theological education. Visit us online: www.vts.edu.
