FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Dr. Scott Manor Named Vice President of Academics at Knox Theological Seminary
FORT LAUDERDALE, FL, 08/15/2014 – The Board of Directors of Knox Theological Seminary is pleased to announce Dr. Scott Manor as Vice President of Academics, effective immediately. Dr. Manor has served Knox Theological Seminary as Dean of Distance Education and will continue his teaching responsibilities as Assistant Professor of Historical Theology, oversight of the online campus, and help President Lamerson as Knox continues to attract exceptional faculty members and build on its reputation for academic excellence.
Dr. Manor is a beloved figure at Knox and both the staff and faculty were thrilled to hear of his new position. “Scott Manor has impressed all of us who have worked with him by his intellect, creativity and passion,” said Chairman Clark Cochran. “We are extremely excited to have him serve Knox in this new position, which will give him the opportunity to use his great talents to maximum benefit for Knox.”
Since joining the Knox staff in 2012, Dr. Manor has been instrumental in building the Knox Online program that now serves over 250 students. This unprecedented growth that Knox has seen over the last few years has been due, in part, to the hard work of Dr. Manor, as well as the foundation for distance learning that was put in place by those who have worked with him.
“During my time at Knox I have clearly recognized and greatly appreciated the authenticity, integrity, and abilities of the seminary’s staff and faculty. Above all, each person at Knox loves the Lord and is dedicated to the mission of training men and women for effective, Christ-centered ministry,” said Dr. Manor. “Knox continues to be a beacon of faith and learning in south Florida and, with the continual growth of the online program, around the world. It is a pleasure and a distinct honor to serve alongside such talented individuals for the sake of our Lord Jesus Christ and His Kingdom.”
President Lamerson, when asked about the appointment of Dr. Manor said, “I cannot think of anyone with whom I would rather work. Scotty is gracious, kind, wonderfully humble, and is a great gift to the Seminary and the Kingdom of God.”
After attending Covenant College and Covenant Seminary for his undergraduate and master’s degrees, Dr. Manor graduated from the University of Edinburgh, Scotland, with an MTh and PhD in Early Christianity. In the year prior to coming to Knox Seminary, he held a post-doctoral position in research and language study at the Institut Catholique de Paris.
He and his wife Rebecca have recently given birth to their son Iren (named after Irenaeus as a tribute to Dr. Manor’s work in Church History). Please join Knox in welcoming and praying for Dr. Manor, and his family, as he undertakes this important role at Knox Seminary.
