Jeremy Pelton has been named Vice President for Enrollment Management at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. In making the appointment, President R.

“Our Admissions team is outstanding, and Jeremy Pelton will bring next-level leadership to this essential part of the Southern Seminary leadership team. I am very thankful that Jeremy has taken on this new role, and I look forward to seeing what the Lord does through him in strengthening Southern Seminary and Boyce College and assisting young people to follow God’s call with joy and obedience.”

Paul Akin, SBTS Provost, says Pelton is one of the most highly gifted and experienced leaders at Southern and appointing him to this new role will strengthen the institution.

“Jeremy Pelton is one of the most competent and gifted leaders serving Southern Seminary and Boyce College,” Akin said. “He is a systems builder, relates well with students and faculty, and has done an outstanding job as our Director of Admissions.
