David Esterline to be next president of Pittsburgh seminary: People

Pittsburgh Theological Seminary, affiliated with the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), has named David Esterline as its next president. He will begin in the role on June 15 and also serve as professor of cross-cultural theological education.

“I share the seminary’s goal of re­con­figuring theological education in an era when students take many paths to the ministry, not just the traditional full-time course load toward a master of divinity degree,” Esterline said.

Current president William J. Carl III is retiring in June.
