Dean Michael Battle Leaving Virginia Theological Seminary
Dean Horne, in an email to the seminary community made the following comments: During his time here at VTS, Dr. Battle has made significant contributions to the work of our racial-ethnic diversity initiative. His commitment to reconciliation has been a hallmark of his teaching and preaching in this community and in the many congregations, dioceses, and countries he has visited. Dr. Battle’s work on national and international committees and consultations has helped to strengthen our ties with other dioceses and provinces of the Anglican Communion. We shall miss having Michael, Raquel, Sage, Bliss, and Zion Battle as members of our seminary community.
Dr. Battle will begin his new work in Los Angeles in July.
