Honoring Randy and Karen MacFarland

Dr. Randy MacFarland joined Denver Seminary’s faculty in 1997 and served as provost/dean from 2008-2018. In this role, he served as the chief administrative officer and chief academic officer of the Seminary. He was the vice president/dean from 2001-2008, and vice president of training and mentoring and associate professor of pastoral ministry and evangelism from 1997-2001. Randy earned his Doctor of Ministry degree from Andover Newton Theological School, a Master of Divinity from Denver Seminary, and a Bachelor of Arts from Hartwick College.

Leadership development was Randy’s passion over the course of 44 years in vocational ministry. This passion led him to focus on discipling others in his ministry as a church planter in New England. His concern for holistic development of leaders was reflected in his design and development of the training and mentoring program and the implementation of a professional development assessment process for faculty at Denver Seminary. Randy and Karen have a long-standing commitment to encouraging and supporting professional development through the pursuit of additional education and training.

Supporting the Growth and Development of Leaders

The purpose of the Fund is to provide opportunity for faculty and staff development as they pursue courses, certifications, and degrees that would benefit them professionally as well be in the interest of Denver Seminary. Policy for the awarding of funds would be under the control of a committee and would include a commitment of time of service owed back to Denver Seminary for funds awarded.
