With the recent departure of Dr. Gail Robinson, former Vice President of Enrollment Services and Institutional Effectiveness, MTS was left with only two vice presidents to provide oversight of administrative activities. President Jody Hill, along with our remaining two vice presidents, Dr. Peter R. Gathje and Cassandra Price-Perry, felt that Dr. Michael Qualls, who currently serves as the Director of the Cumberland Presbyterian House of Studies and the Program of Alternate Studies, would be an outstanding selection to fill this administrative void.

Therefore, we are pleased to announce that Dr. Michael Qualls has been promoted to the position of Vice President for Cumberland Presbyterian Church Relations. In addition to providing administrative support to MTS, Dr. Qualls will expand his presence and representation on behalf of the seminary within the larger Cumberland Presbyterian Church.

President Jody Hill says, “I am grateful for Michael’s years of commitment to the mission of MTS and his passion for enhancing our relationship with the Cumberland Presbyterian Church. I have every confidence that Michael will excel in this expanded role.”

Please join us in congratulating Dr. Qualls!
