He was again appointed VPAA in 2011 and later named provost in spring 2012. His 15 years of practical ministry prior to coming to Southeastern — including positions as a senior pastor, associate pastor, youth pastor, and high school and college teacher — are a rich source of experience and wisdom that Dr. Hackett passes on to his students. His excellence in teaching was recognized in 1992 and again in 2006 with Southeastern’s presentation to him of the Outstanding Faculty of the Year Award.

Dr. Hackett also speaks in churches and in district schools of ministry, and he speaks regularly at Southeastern’s chapel.
