Carl Cosaert, professor of biblical studies, was recently named president-elect of the Adventist Theological Society (ATS). Cosaert will serve two years as president-elect and then two years as president. He also recently completed a term as president of the Adventist Society for Religious Studies (ASRS).
“What interested me in helping out with ATS is their global outreach to the world church,” said Cosaert. “I’ve traveled for ATS internationally and have seen the blessing this organization has been in helping to educate church leaders as they grow in their understanding of the biblical basis of our Adventist beliefs.”
ATS resources are available by request from church leaders and seminaries for theological assistance, training for workers, Bible symposia, and camp meeting speakers. The ATS regularly touches Adventist leaders, pastors, theologians, and lay people with the inspiration, power, and depth of God’s Word.
In his work with ATS, Cosaert has traveled to Africa, Australia, and other international locations. On a recent ATS trip to Mexico, he helped with the recording of a video series titled “Faithful to the Scriptures” that was prepared as a gift to the world church in connection to the North American Division Ministerial Council and the recent General Conference Session in San Antonio. The series consists of 26 programs, each 30 minutes in length. The purpose of the series is to introduce church members to the books of the Bible and what it means to be faithful to them. The series is available at ATSacademy.org.
