OVIEDO, Fla. — Reformed Theological Seminary is pleased to announce that the Rev. Michael J. Glodo has been promoted from Associate Professor to Professor of Pastoral Theology, effective June 1, 2024.

Glodo has served on the RTS Orlando faculty since 1991, with the exception of six years as stated clerk of the Evangelical Presbyterian Church. He has taught courses in Old Testament, New Testament, preaching, ministry, and more. He has also served as dean of the chapel, planning and leading chapel services for the campus for several years.

“If faculty are the heart of a seminary, then Professor Mike Glodo is the pericardium,” said RTS Orlando President Dr. Scott Swain. “His friendship binds the entire faculty together. His office is a haven where students come and go throughout their time on campus—and often beyond. Professor Glodo is distinctly worthy of the honor of this promotion. One of the great joys of my professional life is serving alongside him as a colleague.”

Glodo holds degrees from the University of Illinois (B.S.), Covenant Theological Seminary (MDiv, ThM), and Westminster Theological Seminary (ThM). His research interests include the centrality of the church as God’s people on mission and media ecology. He maintains an active pulpit ministry, consults with churches, and has served in interim roles for churches in transition.

Also an active writer, Glodo has published numerous articles online and in academic journals. Recently, he is the author of The Lord Bless You and Keep You: The Promise of the Gospel in the Aaronic Blessing (Crossway, 2023).

“Mike Glodo is being honored in recognition of years of service through teaching and preaching, mentoring and investing in the RTS Orlando community,” said Dr. Michael Allen, Academic Dean. “RTS Orlando is what it is because of the longstanding model of her senior faculty members, and Mike Glodo has modeled care for students and alumni and a commitment to churchmanship in a way that sets the bar high for all.”
