Arnett chosen to lead Zion Bible College
Wed, 10 Oct 2012 - 3:19 PM CST
The Board of Trustees of Zion Bible College in Haverhill, Massachusetts, has announced that Dr. David Arnett has been selected as the school's new president-elect.
Arnett is currently serving as the vice president for Academic Affairs (Chief Academic Officer) at Central Bible College in Springfield, Missouri, as well as professor of Homiletics, Pastoral Ministries, Theology and Bible. He holds a BA degree from Central Bible College and an MA and D. Min. from the Assemblies of God Theological Seminary.
Having served in churches in New Mexico, Illinois, Wisconsin and Missouri, Arnett has also planted eight churches and a Christian Academy. He travels extensively preaching and teaching. His wife Kathy is currently serving as the executive director for Alumni Relations for CBC.
"My wife and I are excited about this opportunity as it follows the call of God on my life - to train and prepare ministers, missionaries and Pentecostal workers for the local church," Arnett says. "Zion has a beautiful campus and has potential for expansion and growth coupled with a vision to reach the world."
Arnett will follow current president, Dr. Charles Crabtree. Crabtree, the former assistant general superintendent of the Assemblies of God, announced earlier this year that he will retire at the end of the 2012-2013 school year. Since his election as president four years ago, Crabtree has led in doubling the school's enrollment from 200 to 400 students and is preparing to add a master's degree program. "I must give credit to President Charles Crabtree," Arnett says. "He has done an amazing job in his tenure."
The inauguration of Dr. Arnett will take place in conjunction with ZBC's graduation day, May 10, 2013, at Zion Bible College.
