Grace College & Theological Seminary celebrated the presidential inauguration of Dr. Drew Flamm on Friday. Earlier this year, the college’s board of trustees unanimously voted to select Flamm as its seventh president following a seven-month national search.
Flamm began serving as president in July 2022. He has worked at Grace since 2013, serving as the school’s executive vice president and vice president of advancement.
“Dr. Flamm has proven himself as a servant-hearted leader with a genuine passion for Christian higher education over the past nine years he’s been at Grace,” said Dan Renner, chair of the college’s board of trustees. “He brings a fantastic blend of business acumen, skillful leadership and higher education experience to the role, and I’m excited to see how his unique talents shape the next chapter at Grace College & Theological Seminary. November 4th will be a special day to honor him and pray for him and his family as they assume a critical role.”
Flamm’s background includes 16 years of experience in higher education, according to Grace. From 2006 to 2013, he served in a variety of roles in Cedarville University’s advancement office. Later, Flamm was director of development at Manchester University.
“I am humbled to follow in the rich legacy of leadership at Grace College & Theological Seminary, honored to serve students, faculty and staff and hopeful for the future as we continue to know Christ and make Him known,” said Flamm. “As a product of Christian higher education myself, I know the transformative effect it had on my faith and my life.”
In his first months as president, Grace says Flamm has “hit the ground running,” and is highly involved with faculty, staff, students and the community.
