Cor Kors Joins General Synod Professors of Theology
General Synod today elected Cornelis Kors a General Synod professor of theology.
For 22 years, Kors has served as executive director of the RCA’s Ministerial Formation Certification Agency, formerly the Theological Education Agency, and has supervised the Certificate of Fitness for Ministry of more than 350 people who sought ordination in the RCA but attended a seminary that is not affiliated with the denomination.
Kors has also taught at Central College in Pella, Iowa, at Redeemer College in Ancaster, Ontario, and at Fuller Theological Seminary in Pasadena, California.
General Synod professors offer the ministry of teaching within the RCA and "represent the living tradition of the church in the preparation and certification of candidates for its ministry" (Book of Church Order, 1.IV.8.1). Kors joins 11 other General Synod professors of theology.
