Western Seminary Officially Inaugurates President Chuck Conniry

Chuck Conniry Inaugurated

Nov. 18, 2022

On Nov. 10, Western Seminary hosted the inauguration ceremony of our 12th president — Dr. Chuck Conniry — at Hinson Baptist Church in Portland. Thank you to all who attended in person or online!

Originally, the inauguration was planned for the fall of 2021. Due to pandemic challenges and COVID restrictions, the event was delayed until there were fewer restrictions for in-person gatherings. We were grateful for the opportunity to recognize the Lord's faithfulness to the seminary over its 95 years, and to celebrate His provision of a new leader to help carry forward its mission.

The ceremony included charges to the president from the faculty, students, alumni, and the church. You can read the faculty charge delivered by Professor Todd Miles, PhD, on our Transform website.
