Dr. Beth Johnson Retires

Dr. Beth Johnson Retires

Congratulations to Dr. Beth Johnson, the J. Davison Philips Professor of New Testament, on her recent retirement from Columbia Theological Seminary!

For the past 20 years, Dr. Johnson has been a role model for womenas a colleague and a friend, and an inspiring teacher for countless Columbia Seminary students.

A benefactor of the Seminary has proposed the creation of a new E. Elizabeth Johnson Scholarship at Columbia Theological Seminary to honor her scholarship, teaching, and faithful work. It also recognizes her impact as a daughter, wife, mother, and friend to many. Reflecting the values exhibited by Beth in all facets of her life, the scholarship will support students who are called to and have gifts for ministry, but face financial challenges that might keep them from a seminary education. You can make your gift HERE. Check the Tribute Gift box and designate “Beth Johnson”.
