Michael Morgan chosen to lead Episcopal Preaching Foundation

From Episcopal Life Online-

The Rev. Dr. E.F. Michael Morgan will become the executive director of the Episcopal Preaching Foundation on July 1.
Morgan, 66, recently completed work as interim rector of Saint Peter’s Church in Glenside, Pennsylvania. He has served churches in and near Philadelphia and Massachusetts as well as Church of the Good Shepherd in Athens, Ohio.

"I'm looking forward zealously to working closely with Mike Morgan," said A. Gary Shilling, founder of the foundation. "We'll not only continue our highly successful annual Preaching Excellence Program (PEP) conference for seminarians, but also expand our conferences for parish preachers and pursue other programs to fulfill our mission of improving preaching in the Church. Mike brings a wide knowledge of the Episcopal Church, strong leadership and administrative skills, and a firm commitment to Christ and the importance of preaching in proclaiming the Gospel."

Shilling, founder of the investment advisory firm bearing his name, began the foundation in 1987 in an effort to improve preaching in the Episcopal Church. Approximately 10 percent of the clergy active in the Episcopal Church today have participated in the Preaching Excellence Program during which a group of rising Episcopal senior seminarians and just-graduated seminarians gathers for six days of intensive preaching and study.

Morgan will succeed the Rev. Dr. Timothy J. Mulder, whom Shilling thanked for his service to the foundation as a board member, PEP faculty member, executive director and, most recently, as the director of PEP 2009.

"We appreciate Tim's many efforts on our behalf and are delighted over his interest in continuing to serve the foundation," Shilling said.
