Dr. Terry Hofecker (pictured), pastor of Northwest Chapel Grace Brethren Church in Dublin, Ohio, and adjunct faculty with Grace Theological Seminary,
has recently been elected to the Board of the American Schools of Oriental Research (ASOR) as Vice President of Development.
ASOR is a scholarly society founded in 1900 that is committed to expanding and preserving the knowledge of the foundations of human civilization as found in the people and culture of the Ancient Near East.
As a premier archaeological research and publishing institution, ASOR sponsors study and research centers in Jerusalem, Cyprus, and Jordan with committees committed to work in Syria and Iraq.
In his new role, Dr. Hofecker will develop infrastructure and support for institutional advancement and expansion. As a non-traditional scholar, Terry has been active in Syro-Palestinian archaeology for the past few decades and recently helped launch the Tel Gezer Excavation and Publication Project, serving as Project Administrator.
Dr. Hofecker, a Grace Seminary alumnus (MDiv 81, MA 03), will continue his pastoral ministry and seminary teaching.
