Exciting News at Phoenix Seminary

Dr. Brian Arnold Named New Seminary President

The Phoenix Seminary board of trustees voted unanimously on Monday, July 29, 2019, to appoint Dr. Brian Arnold to serve as the next president of Phoenix Seminary. Dr. Arnold will follow 30 years of foundational leadership and service from Founding President, now Phoenix Seminary Chancellor, Dr. Darryl DelHousaye.

“My work has been more foundational, establishing a school that would be solid theologically,” said Dr. DelHousaye. “But I realize now it’s time for God to bring in a new quarterback. I have absolute confidence that he’s going to be used by God to do great things for this school.”

“At Phoenix Seminary we are producing men and women who will be serving the local church,” said Dr. Arnold. “I want them to do that with the best education they can get, and hearts aflame with the gospel."
