Pittsburgh Theological Seminary Board of Directors has named Audrey Thompson as assistant professor of homiletics.

“The Homiletics Search Committee has been working hard for more than a year looking far and wide to find an outstanding candidate to present to the Board—and we are convinced that Audrey Thompson is that person. We believe she will make a significant contribution to the teaching of preaching both at Pittsburgh Seminary and beyond,” said the Rev. Dr. William J. Carl III, president and professor of homiletics at PTS.

Thompson earned her degrees from Hampton University (B.A.), School of Theology, Virginia Union University (M.Div.), and Princeton Theological Seminary (M.Th.). Additionally, she will receive her doctorate from Princeton Theological Seminary this spring. Her previous teaching roles include Candler School of Theology, Princeton Theological Seminary, and Virginia Union University. She has served in two churches. Thompson will also be ordained this spring as a minister in her denomination, The Progressive Baptist Church. She starts at Pittsburgh Seminary in June.
