Hood Seminary convocation Friday

SALISBURY — Dr. Bradley Trick, assistant professor in New Testament at Hood Theological Seminary, will be the speaker for the seminary’s opening convocation Friday.
“Dr. Trick served as visiting professor of New Testament studies last year and we are extremely proud he has now accepted the assistant professor position of the seminary. We are indeed fortunate to have this promising young scholar and professor as a full time member of our faculty” Hood President Dr. Albert Aymer said.
The service will take place at 7 p.m. Friday in the multi-purpose room on the seminary campus. This service marks the official beginning of the academic year and is a time when the seminary community joins together asking God’s guidance throughout the coming year. It is also a time that new students personally sign their names on a document which serves as a part of the historical record of the seminary. The public is invited to attend.
Born in Charleston, S.C., Trick’s childhood was spent primarily in Birmingham, Ala. At Harvard University, he majored in computer science, graduating cum laude, after which he served as a teacher with Overseas Missionary Fellowship to Qingdao, China.
Trick earned master’s degrees from Regent College,Vancouver, British Columbia. Most recently he completed his doctorate at Duke University, where he was named a James B. Duke Fellow and a Dolores Zohrab Liebmann Fellow. His dissertation — “Sons, Seed, and Children of Promise in Galatians” — explored Paul’s understanding of Abrahamic descent and the corresponding relation of Jews and gentiles in Christ. He shared sections of the work in a recent Hood Faculty Colloquium and as a presentation at the 2010 Annual Meeting of the Society for Biblical Literature.
Trick, his wife Elizabeth, and their 3-year-old daughter Makara live in Salisbury.
Hood Theological Seminary, located 1810 Lutheran Synod Drive, is sponsored by the AME Zion Church.
