Dr. Dan Doriani, vice president of strategic academic projects and professor of theology, is one of four evangelical leaders recently elected to the Gospel Coalition’s Council, a collection of 52 pastors who provide direction and leadership to the organization; meets annually for fellowship, discussion, planning, accountability, and prayer around the gospel of our Lord Jesus; and aims to bring biblical conviction and pastoral sensitivity to bear on a range of pressing contemporary issues. The Council is committed to shepherding the next generation of church leaders in line with the Coalition’s foundation documents.
