Erskine College & Theological Seminary Board of Trustees Chairman William Cain informed trustees this morning that he has appointed an ad hoc committee “to search for an interim presidential candidate to bring to the Board for its consideration.”

The committee will be chaired by trustee Robert G. McDonald of Simpsonville. Trustees named to the committee are:

  • The Rev. William S. Cain, Louisville, Ga., Pastor, Louisville ARP Church
  • The Rev. Mark McDowell, Columbia, Assistant Minister, First Presbyterian Church
  • The Rev. Peter Waid, Spartanburg, Pastor, Spartanburg ARP Church
  • The Rev. Bert Welch, Lancaster, Senior Pastor, Covenant Baptist Church

Greg Haselden, Erskine’s senior vice president of finance and operations, will serve as advisor as needed or requested by the committee.

Cain asked the board and advisors to “pray for these trustees as they move ahead with this important task.”
