The Board of Trustees is comprised of many members of the community, and are dedicated to ensure that Biblical Seminary provides the best education for all.
Thank you Rev. Dr. George Gunn Jr. for 14 years of service
George joined BTS’s board in March of 2000, bringing with him a wealth of business and ministry experience.
After a successful career in advertising, George felt called to seminary. He responded and enrolled at Princeton Theological Seminary. While there, he was recruited to serve as CEO of Acts Retirement-Life Communities Inc. The role provided an outlet for his experience in business and passion for people. His tenure was remarkably successful. Marvin Heaps, ACTS chairman at the time (and former BTS board member) noted, “George Gunn has devoted his leadership to nurturing the residents’ social, personal, health and spiritual needs. His leadership efforts also resulted in a corporate turnaround generating average annual growth of nearly 15% after years of stagnant performance.” George is a teaching elder in the Presbyterian Church in America.
At BTS, George served the board in a variety of roles. He served on several board committees, two terms as vice chair, interim chair, and chair of the board.
“George’s contribution to the seminary’s ministry has been invaluable. He has given his time, talent, and financial gifts to further our mission of preparing men and women to follow Jesus into the world. He is a man I deeply admire and respect,” said President Frank James. “Scripture says that ‘to whom much is given much is required.’ George is a man who understands that and has faithfully given of himself to further God’s kingdom.
Thank you George!
