New General Editor for Kalos Press

It is my weighty privilege and responsibility to make an announcement that involves all of us: once more, we have a "passing of the baton" in leadership with Kalos Press.

Jessica Snell, who has ably served in the position of General Editor since 2014, informed me in November that she had reluctantly reached the decision to step down from this post at the end of the year, in order to pursue her own writing career in earnest. Jessica's two-plus years of leadership, administration, service, and oversight of Kalos Press have been an amazing blessing to me, to Doulos Resources, and to all of you; she has worked tirelessly to see many projects to publication—some of which are still yet to come—and has never ceased to give of herself and her many talents. She has brought Kalos Press to new levels of achievement and organization, and it is fair to say that we would not be where we are today without her; not only so, but I am certain that the impact of her work with us will be known for a long while to come. I cannot sing her praises loudly enough, and I am sure that you join me in bidding her the fondest of farewells.

(Pauses for applause.)

As great is my regret that Jessica is moving on, I am equally pleased to announce her successor, David Bedsole, who is returning to the position of General Editor effective immediately. When the vision for what would become Kalos Press was a new idea in 2010, and the board of Doulos Resources gave its approval to move forward, David was the first (and only) person who came to mind as an ideal candidate to help me/us to see that vision come to fruition. He served as the founding General Editor from 2011 to 2013, and we are as pleased as we can possibly be to have him return to that post now.
For those of you who do not know David, I offer alongside my wholehearted endorsement a brief summary of his credentials: he holds a BA in English from Huntingdon College, a masters degree from Covenant Seminary in St. Louis, and an MA in Professional Communication from Clemson University; he is also a doctoral candidate in English from Florida State University. David taught at King College (now University) in Bristol, TN prior to beginning PhD study, and currently is an instructor in the English department at the University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa.

I might also mention that David has served as an elder in his local church, and is a great lover of church, kingdom, and culture; I have no reservations whatsoever about his capacity to tend and shepherd the work he is taking up.

David, we welcome you back to Kalos Press, and look forward to working with you! Jessica, thank you, so very much, for sharing your gifts, talent, and time with us for these 28 months; there will always be a place for you at Kalos Press.

From Ed Eubanks, Publisher
