$2.5M GIFT ENDOWS EVANGELISM CHAIR
With a $2.5 million gift, Daniel and Lillian Hankey established the Daniel and Lillian Hankey Chair in World Evangelism at the Candler School of Theology, securing “Candler’s leadership place in evangelism and mission,” said Russell Richey, dean of the Candler school.
With the Arthur J. Moore Chair in Evangelism, Candler now has two endowed positions devoted to education in evangelism, putting it in a unique position among theology schools.
In addition to teaching classes on evangelism, the holder of the Hankey Chair will direct a contextual education group and work with the World Methodist Evangelism Institute (WMEI) and World Methodist Council.
The Hankeys are longtime members of the Emory community, and even met in Emory’s biochemistry labs. Lillian Hankey worked in the Department of Biochemistry and Daniel Hankey is an emeritus professor of medicine. Their chair is the first established at Candler by a living donor in 20 years.
