The President of Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, Dr. Albert Mohler is joining the Board of Directors of Focus on the Family, a non-profit organization committed to strengthening the family in the U.S. and throughout the world.

"The addition of Dr. Mohler to our Board will bring a wealth of leadership experience, theological insight and intellectual acumen to Focus on the Family. We are delighted that our ministry is in a position to benefit from all he has to offer," said Dr. Dobson, founder and chairman of Focus on the Family.

Focus on the Family began in 1977 in response to Dr. James Dobson's increasing concern for the American family. Focus on the Family has since become an international organization with more than 74 different ministries requiring nearly 1,300 employees.

Dr. Mohler has earned a Master of Divinity and Doctor of Philosophy degrees in Systematic and Historical Theology from Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, KY. He has also pursued additional studies through the St. Meinrad School of Theology and Oxford University in England. In addition to his presidency at SBTS, Dr. Mohler has served as pastor and staff minister for several Southern Baptist churches.

Dr. Mohler hosts a daily national radio broadcast, "The Albert Mohler Program," on the Salem Communications network with an audience of over 96,000. His program is devoted to engaging contemporary culture with Biblical truths.

"Given Dr. Mohler's unique perspective and experience, I have no doubt he will prove to be an outstanding addition to our Board. He is truly a leader among evangelicals. We're extremely fortunate that Dr. Mohler has seen fit to lend his expertise to our mission in this way," Dr. Dobson stated.
