It is with deep sadness that Claremont School of Theology announces the passing of Dr. Mark David Parsons after a long battle with cancer. Dr. Parsons passed away a little before 7:00 a.m. this morning in his parents' home in Bend, Oregon. His father was at his bedside. He was comfortable, quiet and slipped away in his sleep. The family is surrounded by loved ones and receiving pastoral care. At this point, arrangements are pending for celebrating Dr. Parsons' life. When more information is received, we will share it with the CST community.

Dr. Mark Parsons received a joint-faculty appointment for the Disciples Seminary Foundation (DSF) and Claremont School of Theology (CST) in 2005. He served that appointment as the Assistant Professor of Religion and Music until 2014. He also served CST as the Interim Vice President of Academic Affairs and Dean of the Faculty during the summer of 2013.

Cards and messages for the family may be directed to the Deans Office.
