The executive committee of RTS has announced the retirement of Dr. Michael A. Milton from his office of chancellor and CEO of Reformed Theological Seminary. Dr. Milton explained that he has suffered from a debilitating illness that the physicians confirmed could not be remedied without sustained rest. They also confirmed that upon sustained rest, and a period of recovery, he could resume his pastoral duties. In light of this, and for the sake of recovery from a chronic illness and to seek future, long term ministry in the church for Mike, the executive committee of RTS has recommended a compassionate retirement from his position of leadership effective May 1, 2013.
Richard Ridgway, chairman of the board of trustees said “This difficult decision was made out of love for Mike and Mae Milton and a desire to see a return to health and future service in the church of Christ. Mike has served RTS steadfastly. We ask for prayers for this gifted and visionary servant of Christ during this time of rest and recovery.”
Dr. Milton has written a personal letter to the family and friends of RTS regarding this transition from service at RTS. Please access his pastoral letter at michaelmilton.org.
