Dr. Angela Simms leans against a bookshelf at Saint Paul School of Theology.

Dr. Angela Sims will be leaving Saint Paul School of Theology

It is with mixed emotions that we announce that Dr. Angela Sims will be leaving Saint Paul School of Theology effective May 31, 2019. With new beginnings on her horizon, Dr. Sims will be joining Colgate Rochester Crozer Divinity School in Rochester, NY as President.

We are very appreciative of the work that Dr. Sims has contributed as both an administrator and as a faculty member for the seminary. While we will miss the leadership, vision and teachings she brought to Saint Paul, we are excited for her as she moves forward in her career. Rest assured that during this transitional period, our Executive Leadership and Institutional Advancement teams are ready and willing to handle any inquirers or donations that come along. 

On behalf of everyone at Saint Paul School of Theology, I wish Dr. Sims good luck in her future endeavors.

    Angela, I got three phone calls telling me the good news. God bless you in your transition!

    As a graduate of Crozer TS many years ago (1957), I am pleased to learn of the appointment of Dr. Sims as president to CRCDS. I am especially interested in her research and writing. I live in Nashville TN, close enough to Montgomery AL to visit the two civil rights museums there.
    Congratulations to Dr. Sims. I wish her well.
