Jordan joins Hood Seminary faculty

The Rev. N. Fred Jordan Jr., a Salisbury native, will join the Hood Seminary faculty this semester as an adjunct professor of United Methodist studies.
“All of us at Hood Theological Seminary are delighted that Rev. Fred Jordan has agreed to serve,” said Dr. Michael Turner, associate professor of the history of Christianity. “Rev. Jordan has had a distinguished career in ministry in the United Methodist Church that has spanned over 40 years. During that time, he has served in a number of impressive roles within the Western North Carolina Conference including service as the district superintendent to the North Wilkesboro district and as a chair of the Conference’s Board of Ordained Ministry. Truly, his presence on the faculty provides United Methodist students with a rare opportunity to learn about church leadership, their denomination’s polity, and the ordination process from a professor with such extensive experience in pastoral ministry and deep knowledge of denominational politics.”
Jordan is a graduate of Catawba College and Duke Divinity School. He is an ordained elder of the Western North Carolina Annual Conference since 1971 and has pastored a number of UMC churches throughout his career. Jordan has served as chair, District Council on Ministries — Albemarle and Winston-Salem districts, as coordinator of camp and retreat ministries for the WNCC and has taught in licensing school for UMC local pastors.
He also served on the Board of Trustees for Brevard College. Jordan and his wife Katherine (“Taffy”) live in Salisbury. They have three adult children and seven grandchildren.
