BANGOR, Maine — The president of Bangor Theological Seminary will resign effective June 30 after three years on the job.
The Rev. Kent J. Ulery, 60, of Bangor has headed the nearly 200-year-old institution since July 1, 2008.
“We deeply appreciate President Ulery’s dedicated and faithful service to the seminary over the past three years,” H. Lowell Brown, chairman of the board of trustees, said Friday in a press release announcing Ulery’s resignation.
Brown also said that a national search for a new president has begun and an interim president would be announced soon.
Ulery replaced the Rev. William Imes, who retired June 30, 2008, after seven years as seminary president.
Before coming to Bangor, Ulery was the minister for the Michigan Conference of the United Church of Christ in East Lansing, Mich., for 12 years. Before working for the UCC conference, Ulery pastored churches in Indiana, Illinois and Michigan.
