Russell Moore, president of the SBC Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission, is leaving ERLC to join the staff of Christianity Today as a public theologian, according to Religion News Service. He begins the new role this summer.
Moore will lead a new Public Theology Project, said Tim Dalrymple, president and CEO of Christianity Today. That project will host events and gatherings about public theology and publish content, including Moore’s writing and his Signposts podcast, RNS reported.
“I’ve struggled with this decision, because my gratitude for the honor of serving the Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission is so deep. As I conclude my time serving Southern Baptists as ERLC president, I am filled with gratitude as well as excitement for the future,” Moore said in a statement.
