Statement from President Blount on the passing of Dr. Arnold Lovell

Dear Friends,

I write to share the sad news regarding the death of Dr. Arnold B. Lovell. Dr. Lovell came to Union Theological Seminary as a graduate of Appalachian State University. A 1981 Doctor of Ministry graduate of UTS, he would also go on to earn a Doctorate in Education from the Presbyterian School of Christian Education. Dr. Lovell returned to the Union community to become a Visiting Professor of Evangelism at the seminary for more than a decade. He also taught Polity. He served as senior pastor at First Presbyterian Church, South Charleston, West Virginia and Second Presbyterian Church, Knoxville, Tennessee, and as an interim pastor for churches in Tennessee, North Carolina, and Virginia. He is survived by his wife, Emily Sexton Lovell, and their daughters Carolyn Edmunds Lovell and Catherine Hedrick Lovell Lawson. The Service of Worship and Witness to the Resurrection will be held on Thursday, July 21, 2016 at 3 p.m. at Clemmons Presbyterian Church, 3930 Clemmons Road, Clemmons, NC 27102. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that memorials be sent to the Mt. Eval Association, c/o Stewart Sexton, 321 N Main St., Denton, NC, 27239.
