The Trinity School for Ministry Board of Trustees announced the appointment of The Rev. Cn. Dr. Bryan C. Hollon, Ph.D., as the eighth Dean President of the school.
Dr. Hollon is a Professor of Theology at Malone University in Canton, Ohio, Director of the C.S. Lewis Institute of Northeast Ohio, Canon Theologian of the Anglican Diocese of the Great Lakes, and Chair of the Executive Committee of the Society of Anglican Theologians. As an accomplished scholar, pastor, and administrator, the Board of Trustees is enthusiastic and confident in Dr. Hollon as he accepts this new call.
Dr. Hollon said he's excited and humbled at the new opportunity to lead.
“I am humbled, profoundly grateful, and delighted for this opportunity to join the Trinity community as Dean President. During the interview process, Suzanne and I felt warmly welcomed and encouraged by the faculty, staff, and entire Board of Trustees. We are eager to begin serving alongside so many gifted and committed people and look forward to getting to know more of the community in the months ahead. We covet your prayers during this time of transition and throughout my years as Dean President.”
Hollon received his Ph.D. in Religion from Baylor University in 2006, and his MDiv from Fuller Theological Seminary in 2001. Dr. Hollon is a proponent of the great consensual tradition that C.S. Lewis referred to as “Mere Christianity,” and as a scholar, he specializes in Ressourcement theology, which is best exemplified in the work of Henri de Lubac. He is the author of Everything is Sacred: Spiritual Exegesis in the Political Theology of Henri de Lubac (Cascade Books, 2008) as well as numerous book chapters, journal, and magazine articles.
Dr. Hollon was ordained a priest in the Anglican Church in North America in 2015. In 2017, he planted and pastored St. John’s Anglican Church in Canton, Ohio until a full-time Rector was called in May of 2021.
Bryan and Suzanne met at Baylor University and were married in 1993. They have three children. Harrison is a graduate of Mount Union University and lives in Columbus, Ohio. Claire will be a senior at Baldwin Wallace University and John will be a freshman at Ohio State University.
