Hood Seminary convocation Friday

Dr. Albert Aymer, president of Hood Theological Seminary, today announced Dr. Bradley Trick, assistant professor in New Testament at Hood Theological Seminary, as the speaker for the Opening Convocation.
“Dr. Trick served as visiting professor of New Testament studies last year and we are extremely proud he has now accepted the assistant professor position of the seminary. We are indeed fortunate to have this promising young scholar and professor as a full time member of our faculty” said Aymer.
The Opening Convocation Service will take place at 7 p.m. Friday, Sept. 16, in the multi-purpose room on the seminary campus. This service marks the official beginning of the academic year and is a time when the seminary community joins together asking God’s guidance throughout the coming year. It is also a time that new students personally sign their names on a document which serves as a part of the historical record of the seminary. The public is invited to attend the service.
Born in Charleston, S.C., Trick’s childhood was spent primarily in Birmingham, Ala. At Harvard University he majored in computer science, graduating cum laude, after which he served as a teacher with Overseas Missionary Fellowship to Qingdao, China (PRC). Trick earned both an M.Div. and Th.M. from Regent College,Vancouver, British Columbia. Most recently he completed his Ph.D. at Duke University, where he was named a James B. Duke Fellow and a Dolores Zohrab Liebmann Fellow. His dissertation — “Sons, Seed, and Children of Promise in Galatians” — explored Paul’s understanding of Abrahamic descent and the corresponding relation of Jews and gentiles in Christ. He shared sections of the work in a recent Hood Faculty Colloquium and as a presentation at the 2010 Annual Meeting of the Society for Biblical Literature.
Trick, his wife Elizabeth, and their 3-year-old daughter Makara live at 500 S. Fulton St.
