When members of the Academic Committee were searching for a second fulltime professor, they were all in agreement regarding the qualifications. They were not looking for a man with a curriculum vitae that showed extensive publishing credentials and multiple letters after his last name, proving the candidate spent his years in the pastor’s study accumulating impressive degrees. No, they wanted a man whose competence in handling the theological loci would only be eclipsed by his love and service for the church.
In Dr. J.P. Mosley, they hired both a true servant of the church and a man who has proven to be theologically astute. Seminary President, Dr. Maynard Koerner said, “The Academic Committee had several gifted candidates from which to choose, and any one of those men could have served the seminary well, but Dr. Mosley has shown to excel in the classroom and in the church. We have an academic and gifted churchman who has already taught classes at HTS, and the students have enjoyed his classes.”
