While Dr. R.C. Sproul remains healthy and vibrant, we have invited a new generation of teachers to help the ministry remain true to its founding purpose. The board knew it would be impossible to find one man to whom the torch could be passed. The reality is that Dr. Sproul is a unique gift from the Lord. So we looked for men who were trustworthy, able-in-their-field, and wise.

It's our great delight to tell you that at the beginning of 2010, Drs. Robert Godfrey, Sinclair Ferguson, Steven Lawson, and R.C. Sproul Jr. became Teaching Fellows at Ligonier Ministries. In May 2013, Dr. Stephen J. Nichols joined this group of men. These five serve as advisors to Dr. Sproul, the board, and senior leadership, and actively teach in all the ministries at Ligonier.
