Sproul Appoints New Ligonier President

Nov 24, 2004

R.C. Sproul, founder and chairman of Ligonier Ministries, a Christian educational ministry located in Orlando, Florida, has appointed Timothy A. Dick to succeed him as president of Ligonier Ministries effective immediately.

“I am proud and excited to announce that Tim Dick has been promoted from executive vice president to president of Ligonier Ministries. This move frees me from administrative responsibilities so I can devote my time to teaching and preaching,” said Dr. Sproul. “Tim knows all aspects of the ministry and has done a superb job of running the day-to-day operation for the past few years. The board and I have total confidence in his ability and his devotion to the mission of Ligonier Ministries.” Dr. Sproul founded Ligonier Ministries in 1971 and will continue to serve as chairman of the board of directors.

Under Dick’s leadership as executive vice president for the past four years, the organization was restructured and the ministry’s financial position improved significantly. Also during that time, Mr. Dick has overseen the expansion of the ministry, which includes the recent acquisition of Soli Deo Gloria Ministries. As president, Dick plans to continue with the expansion of international translations, radio broadcasts, and the placement of strategic global distribution centers in Latin, Central and South America, Germany, and the Ukraine.

Prior to working at Ligonier, Mr. Dick was a technical recruiter for eleven years with his own company, the R.K. Michaels Corporation, a specialized executive search firm working in the plastics and molding industry. He holds a B.A. in Business Administration from Saint Vincent College in Latrobe, Pennsylvania.
