Alumni Updates

As Director of Advancement Larry Arick is fond of telling donors, “The return on your investment when you donate to our scholarship fund isn’t the degree that the student received. It’s the lifetime of ministry that follows.”

The latest issue of the Bridge has these updates from some of our alumni.

Jim Woodroof (M.A., 1967) announces the publication of his latest book, Famous Sayings of Jesus. He was also presented with the Distinguished Christian Service Award at the 2012 Pepperdine Bible Lectures — an honor, according to Woodroof, “due certainly in part to Harding Graduate School.”

In October, Duncan Campbell (M.A., 2006) delivered a seminar on “Tribal Youth Ministry: Exploring a Multigenerational Approach” at Westside Church of Christ in Bakersfield, Calif.

Leon Sanderson (M.A., M.R.E., M.Th. and D.Min.) and Dwight Albright (M.A., M.Th.) were honored as Outstanding Alumni of Harding University in October.

The Baxter Institute in Tegucigalpa, Honduras, has asked Steve Teel (D.Min., 2010) to serve as their next president, effective Jan. 1, 2013. The preacher’s college is a four year school with 55 students. It will celebrate its 50th anniversary next year. Teel will also serve as president of Association Amicus, a Honduran NPO that serves the impoverished of Honduras through the James Moody Adams Clinic.

Dr. Curtis D. McClane (M.Div. 1988) announces the publication of his book: The Habitat of Hospitality: Being Jesus for a World in Need. McClane is minister of the Word, prayer, and outreach at Highland View Church of Christ in Oak Ridge, Tenn.

HST Honors Dr. Bill Flatt

November 15, 2012 | Written by Matt Carter

HST honored Dr. Bill Flatt for his lifetime of service at a dinner September 15 in Memphis. He served the school as registrar and dean from 1970 to 1999. As dean, he promoted new degrees as the foundation for our counseling program. You may see the video honoring Dr. Flatt on our Youtube channel.

To honor Dr. Flatt we have established the Flatt Ministry of Counseling Endowment. This fund will provide tuition grants for students seeking a degree in counseling and professional enrichment grants for counseling professors. Our goal is $100,000. If you have been blessed by Flatt and would like to honor him with a gift, you can send it by mail to HST, or you can make a gift online at

If you or your church has been blessed by a faculty or staff member or one of our more than 1,100 graduates, you can make a gift in their honor to the Harding School of Theology Annual Scholarship Fund. Please consider adding HST to your financial planning. Harding University has arranged for you to benefit from the free services of PhilanthroCorp, a nationally known Christian firm. If you have any questions, please email Larry Arick at or call at 901-432-7727.
