Dear Luther community,
Gary Simpson, Professor of Systematic Theology and the Northwestern Lutheran Theological Seminary Chair of Theology, will be retiring upon the conclusion of the 2019-20 academic year, on August 31, 2020. Professor Simpson has taught at Luther Seminary since 1990, before which he spent fourteen years as a Lutheran pastor in California, Missouri, and Oregon.
We are deeply grateful for Professor Simpson’s service to the Luther Seminary community over the past thirty years, and for the generations of faithful leaders he has taught and mentored. Please join me in congratulating Professor Simpson on this important milestone, and thanking him for his many years of service to the mission of Luther Seminary!
Robin Steinke, President
