“I am extremely humbled by this appointment and equally excited to continue the legacy of Luther Rice and these faithful leaders,” Steinhilber said. “Our adherence to the inspiration, inerrancy and authority of Scripture will never waiver as we look to provide more ways to serve the church and community by delivering a biblically based education for Christian men and women for ministry and the marketplace.”
Steinhilber will begin his new role on July 1.
An alumnus of Luther Rice College and Seminary, Steinhilber has served as executive vice president at the seminary for the past nine years.
He holds a bachelor’s degree in accounting from Ohio Wesleyan University, a master’s degree in apologetics and the master of divinity from Luther Rice and a doctorate of ministry from Clamp Divinity School of Anderson University in South Carolina.
In addition to his work at Luther Rice, Steinhilber has served in a variety of ministerial positions including youth ministry, international missions and the pastorate.
Steinhilber and his wife, Crystal, have been married for 21 years. They have one married daughter who lives in the Atlanta area.
