ERLC Hires New Managing Editor of Content
NASHVILLE, Tenn., May 12, 2014—The Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention, announced the appointment of Lindsay Swartz as the new managing editor for content on Monday.
Swartz joins the ERLC communication’s team after serving on the church engagement team for Revive Our Hearts with Nancy Leigh DeMoss. She also served as the blog manager of truewoman.com.
“Lindsay Swartz is a brilliant, creative, gospel-focused Christian with deep biblical roots and a vast cultural scope,” said ERLC President, Russell D. Moore. “She has worked with one of my heroines in the faith—Nancy Leigh DeMoss—at one of the most vibrant Christian ministries in the world today. Her experience and convictions are just right for what we need at the ERLC, and I thank God to have her as a part of our team.”
Daniel Darling, Vice President of the ERLC, also comments on Swartz’s hire.
“We’re excited to bring on Lindsay Swartz,” said Darling. “She has both the theological training and the creative talent to help us engage the world with gospel. Her experience in cultivating rising female voices with Revive Our Hearts with Nancy Leigh DeMoss excites us about our desire to feature young, up-and-coming conservative female voices.”
Swartz is a native of Florida and received a Master of Divinity from Southern Baptist Theological Seminary based in Louisville, Ky.
“It’s safe to say that now is the time to forthrightly yet warmly engage our culture with the true gospel of Jesus Christ, to speak up and out for religious liberty and to see people truly flourishing and thriving,” said Wes Ward, senior director of media and marketing for Revive Our Hearts. “Lindsay Swartz has been used by God to help strengthen the day-to-day faith of thousands of women of God as a leader in the True Woman Movement. We bless this transition to the ERLC and trust that God will use her in new ways to grow the kingdom and reach our culture with the good news of Jesus.”
“Lindsay is a wonderful addition to our team. She has a sharp eye for editing and embodies the spirit of convictional kindness in her tone but most importantly in her character,” said Trillia Newbell, ERLC’s Consultant for Women’s Initiatives.
Swartz is a member of Redemption City Church in Franklin, Tenn. After receiving her seminary education, Swartz worked in camp ministry.
