The NABPR-SW met in Grapevine TX in conjunction with the Southwest Commission on Religious Studies in March 2012. On Friday night (March 9) Dr. Randy Hatchett (HBU) offered a tribute to and reflections on the work of our late colleague, A. J. (Chip) Conyers. Afterward our president, Dr. Dennis Horton (BU), advocated for undergraduate research as a way to connect with and deepen the intellectual lives of our students, colleges and universities. The next morning (March 10) Dr. Jeph Holloway (ETBU) gave a devotional on the provisional nature of our discipline, that is, the pursuit of knowledge, in relation to the Christian ideal of love. Drs. Bruce Corley (BHCTI, president) and Dennis Tucker (GWTTS) shared some of their insights on the topic: "What Is Ahead inTheological Education?". Our secretary, Larry McGraw (LST), helped to facilitate the business meeting. The members elected the following slate of officers for 2012-2013: President, Dr. David B. Capes (HBU); Vice-President, Dr. Dan Stiver (LST); and Secretary, Dr. Larry McGraw (LST). Dr. Horton asked that a e be formed to consider how the society might make appropriate uses of its financial resources. The program this year was planned by Dr. David B. Capes (HBU).
