As director of Alumni Relations, Drake will work closely with the Truett McConnell University Alumni Association and its board members with the goal of increasing alumni membership and involvement in the university.

“With his heart as a pastor and for the church, there is no better fit for director of Alumni Relations than Dr. Drake,” said TMU President Emir Caner. “Dr. Drake is known throughout our convention and has already worked closely with many of our alumni. How blessed we are that he has agreed to serve our graduates.”

Along with his responsibilities as director of Church Relations, Drake will be responsible for overseeing and strengthening communication among graduates, faculty, and staff, and other friends of the Truett McConnell University family. Drake plans to provide a comprehensive alumni program with events, social gatherings, networking, other alumni-related matters.

Drake is enthusiastic to transition into the additional role as the new 2019 semester begins. “I’m an engagement type of person. So, I’m excited about this opportunity to engage, encounter, and build relationships with alumni of Truett McConnell,” he said.
