Gary Hall was awarded the rank of

on April 16. Colleagues, family and friends gathered for a
retirement dinner at the LCU Laughlin Center that evening to honor
his distinctive service as a member of the LCU Seminary faculty.
Professor Emeritus is an honorary rank granted at retirement by the
LCU board of trustees only for faculty with an especially long and
meritorious career at Lincoln Christian. This rank was granted by
the board of trustees at the recommendation of LCU President Keith
H. Ray and the provost, Clay Ham.
Dr. Hall began teaching Old
Testament in the Seminary at Lincoln Christian University in 1986. A
graduate of Milligan College and the Lincoln Christian Seminary, he
had been serving at Kentucky Christian College as professor and
academic dean before accepting the call from LCU. He also has
degrees from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary and Presbyterian

generation of students to pursue excellence in the study of
Scripture. He has influenced them to serve faithfully in their
ministries as preachers, teachers and counselors.

ministries at Lincoln Christian Church, where he continues to teach
adult Sunday school and serve as an elder.
Hall has written extensively for the Christian Standard and
Stone-Campbell Journal. He is the author of two books published by

Commenting on Hall's accomplishments, the LCU provost said: "Dr.
Hall has written more on the book of Deuteronomy than almost any
other scholar in the Stone-Campbell tradition."
In retirement, Hall plans to work with Brian Lowery in editing
and preparing for print Dr. Robert Lowery's commentary on
Revelation. Hall also plans to do some traveling and continue to
teach as an adjunct professor.
The Lincoln Christian University community wishes the best to
Hall and his wife, Cheryl, as he begins retirement on June 1.
LCU's president said: "It has been a rich honor to have Dr. Hall
on our faculty for these many years. He will be sorely missed. We
pray for a relaxing and enjoyable retirement!"
