The Rev. Dr. Charles EcholsCummins Theological Seminary in Summerville is pleased to announce the appointment of the Rev. Dr. Charles L. Echols as a new Adjunct Professor of Old Testament.  For this Spring Semester he will be teaching a course in the Major Prophets.  In 2005, he was awarded the degree of Doctor of Philosophy in Old Testament by the Faculty of Divinity, University of Cambridge, England.  He also holds degrees from the University of St. Andrews in Scotland and Trinity School for Ministry, Abridge, Pennsylvania.

In 2016, Dr. Echols was ordained a Priest in the Diocese of South Carolina by Bishop FitzSimons Allison, and he serves as Curate of the Church of the Redeemer, Orangeburg.  He is also an Adjunct Professor in the Doctor of Ministry (D.Min.) program of the College of Theology, South University, Columbia.  He has authored three books, and written several articles, papers, and reviews for inclusion in other books, journals, and seminars.  From 2008 to 2013, Dr. Echols taught Old Testament courses in India, on the Faculty of Union Biblical Seminary in Pune.

The Very Rev. Dr. Julius Barnes, President and Dean of Cummins Seminary, has said, “Dr. Echols is the third new member to join our faculty in less than a year.  We want the low country community to see that Cummins is expanding its program of quality theological education – raising the bar of excellence - for training clergy and lay persons for mission and ministry in the Church of Jesus Christ.”  Anyone who wants to join Dr. Echols in his course in the Major Prophets, or take any of the other courses offered should call the Seminary at (843) 873-3451.  Or, stop by our campus at 705 South Main Street, Summerville, SC 29485.  Our courses are held on Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday afternoons and evenings, and on Saturday morning and are designed to be available for those who work at other jobs.
