RTS Atlanta Hires New Professor

RTS Atlanta is the Seminary campus I am currently attending. I just received notification that the appointment of Rev. John Yeo has been finalized and that he will start his work on June 1, 2007. He will be the first full-time professor at RTS Atlanta and will be taking the position of Assistant Professor of Old Testament. We are also expecting the hiring of a full-time New Testament professor at the next board meeting. His name is Dr. Bruce Lowe and he is from Australia.

Here is the announcement I received:
