The General Theological Seminary has announced that the Rev. Dr. Todd H. W. Brewer has been named Assistant Professor of New Testament beginning fall 2015. Brewer already has ties with General Seminary, having taught an introductory New Testament course for diaconal candidates this past spring. Most recently, Brewer served as Associate Rector of St. Peter's Episcopal Church, Morristown, New Jersey. He holds an M.Div. from Trinity Episcopal School for Ministry, Ambridge, Pennsylvania, and an M.A. in Biblical Studies from Durham University, Durham, England.
