Dr. Jake Myers Named the Wade P. Huie Chair of Homiletics

Dr. Jake Myers was elected by the Board of Trustees as the Wade P. Huie Associate Professor of Homiletics. The chair was established in 2004 through the generosity of then-Trustee William S. “Billy” Morris III to honor the legacy of Wade P. Huie, Jr. (’46). Dr. Huie served Columbia with distinction as professor of preaching for three decades beginning in 1957.

Being appointed to the Wade P. Huie Chair of Homiletics is an amazing honor,” said Dr. Myers. “I know that he set the bar high during his tenure at Columbia, serving his students with ingenuity and verve. I, like Dr. Huie, am continuously motivated by our students, who truly believe they can change the world through their work.”

Since 2015, Dr. Myers has served as the Assistant Professor of Homiletics at Columbia. Before his arrival at Columbia, he was adjunct faculty at Candler School of Theology, and Assistant Supplementary Professor of Proclamation at Central Baptist Theological Seminary. Myers received his Ph.D. from Emory University, his Master of Divinity from Princeton Theological Seminary, and a B.A., with honors, from Gardner-Webb University’s Department of Religious Studies and Philosophy.
