Welcome to the GTF
GTF President Dr. Paul J Kirbas
Dear GTF Community,
It is with great joy, and humble gratitude, that I begin my role as the third President of the Graduate Theological Foundation. I have warm memories of the last 20 years of my time in the GTF family, first as a student, then as a faculty member, and most recently, as the Chairman of the Board. Today, as I begin my role as President and CEO, I know that I am standing on the shoulders of the leaders of the past. It is my hope and plan to lead GTF to build upon its great strength of the past as we move into a new future. Granted, this future is not what any of us imagined as we started on this journey. This new reality of the Pandemic and its impact on every part of human society is something that all of us, as individuals and institutions, must attempt to navigate. It won’t be easy, but GTF has a strong foundation that can weather major storms.
As I begin my new role of President, it is my hope to get to know our large and diverse family. I would love to “meet” our students, alumni, faculty, and any others through email, phone calls, or zoom meetings. I invite you to reach out to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
And now, let’s begin our journey together. I am excited and pleased to travel with you as we take GTF into its next era of bringing light into the world through our interfaith, international, multicultural education.
Dr. Paul J Kirbas
President and CEO
