Open Letter to President Bacow Regarding Pusey Minister Search

As some of you may know, Harvard recently formed a Search Committee for the next Pusey Minister to replace Rev. Jonathan Walton. As part of our mission to strengthen Christian communities throughout the University, we want to support them in this search.

We ask you to join us in praying for the Search Committee, that they would promptly identify a suitable replacement to serve as a professor of Christian morals to shepherd Harvard’s students.

The search information can be found on the Memorial Church website here. Thoughts and nominations on the search can be addressed to President Bacow by email to memorialchurchsearch@harvard.edu or in a letter addressed to President Bacow at Massachusetts Hall.

Here is the letter from our board to the search committee encouraging them to seek out a minister of genuine Christian faith. If you know anyone who qualifies for the position, we encourage you to nominate them. If you wish to be considered for the position yourself, please let us know and we may arrange a nomination. As always, we welcome questions and input to contact@harvardchristianalumni.org.
