[Dr. Daniel L. Akin]

Dr. Daniel L. Akin became the sixth president of Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary on January 15, 2004, after a unanimous vote of election by the Seminary’s Board of Trustees.

Known as an advocate for international missions and expository preaching, he also has a reputation as a faithful husband and father and genuine man of God. Akin is admired and respected by many Southern Baptists for his dedication to his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and his commitment to teach and proclaim His Word.

Akin, who previously served at Southeastern as Assistant Professor of Theology and Dean of Students from 1992-1996, was Vice-President for Academic Administration/Dean of the School of Theology at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, KY, a position he held until his return to Southeastern.

After earning a Bachelor of Arts in Biblical Studies from Criswell College in 1980, Akin went on to earn both a Master of Divinity Degree from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in 1983 and a Doctor of Philosophy in Humanities from the University of Texas at Arlington in 1989.

His pastoral experience includes serving 10 churches in Texas, Florida, Alabama and Virginia in both interim and full-time capacities. He has also edited and authored numerous articles and books including A Theology for the Church, the 40-volume Christ-Centered Exposition commentary series on the entire Bible, 1,2,3 John (New American Commentary), Ecclesiastes/Song of Songs (Holman Old Testament Commentary), God on Sex, and Engaging Exposition.
