Pepperdine University professor Dr. Gary S. Selby will join the faculty ranks of Emmanuel Christian Seminary at Milligan in January 2017, serving as professor of ministerial formation.

Currently, Selby serves as Pepperdine’s Carl P. Miller Chair of Communication and director of the university’s Center for Faith and Learning where he developed the COMMUNITAS Early Career Pastoral Leadership Program.

He is a frequent lecturer and featured speaker on Christian leadership, as well as on the integration of faith and learning. In 2013, he was the keynote presenter for the Macleod Lectures on Preaching at Princeton Theological Seminary.

“Dr. Selby brings stellar credentials and experience, a passion for teaching and scholarship, and a love for ministry and the church to this important position at Milligan,” Dr. Garland Young, vice president for academic affairs at Milligan said . “He will play a critical role on the Emmanuel faculty in guiding and mentoring ministerial students through the seminary's degree programs, as well as further deepening the strong academic profile of Milligan's School of Bible and Ministry. All of our students will be richly blessed by his presence on our campus.”

Selby has spent more than 35 years in formal and informal service to the church, including two formal ministry appointments, one lasting 19 years.

“Church life is in my DNA,” Selby said. “I love ministry, and I am committed to helping churches become places of spiritual and emotional flourishing. Having spent several decades pastoring churches, I have a special heart for people who serve in ministry and a desire to honor them and support them.”
