The Board of Trustees of Dallas Christian College announced this week its appointment of Dr. Brian D. Smith as the college’s next president.
Smith comes to DCC from Johnson University Florida, where he has served most recently as associate provost. Before that, he served as vice president of academics at Florida Christian College, where he had previously held the positions of associate dean of academics and institutional effectiveness, and registrar.
The appointment follows a national search that began nearly one year ago after the resignation of President Dusty Rubeck. Smith will begin his tenure as president on Nov. 1.
Smith earned a PhD in theology from the University of Exeter (England) in 2011, an MA in contemporary Christian theology and philosophy from Lincoln Christian University in 2005, and a BA in biblical studies and Christian ministry from Florida Christian College in 2003.
Smith and his wife, Samantha, have four children.
