Faculty Appointed to Boys & Girls Clubs Board


HIGH POINT, N.C., July 16, 2014 – The Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater High Point recently appointed Dr. Robert Moses, assistant professor of religion at High Point University, to its board of directors for a three-year term.

As a member of the board, he will serve within board development and with the organization’s Kids Count program.

“I spent about five years mentoring young people in Durham, N.C., so I see my work with the Boys & Girls Clubs as a continuation of my work with inner city youth,” Moses says. “It is an honor to represent HPU in this capacity.”

“We are excited to have Robert Moses from HPU joining our Board of Directors here at Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater High Point,” says Thomas Falgout, president and CEO. “We have had a long tradition of partnering with the university, and having someone from HPU will be a tremendous enhancement to our already strong board.”

Moses joined the HPU faculty in 2013. Originally from Ghana, he has a Bachelor of Science in physics from Howard University, and a Master of Divinity and Doctor of Theology from Duke University. He served as a Visiting DAAD Scholar at the University of Heidelberg, Germany in 2012, where he conducted research on the relation of powers in the letters of Paul to historical and theological interactions in post-World War II Germany.

Fortress Press recently published Moses’ first book titled, “Practices of Power: Revisiting the Principalities and Powers in the Pauline Letters,” that is based on his research. Moses has also written a number of scholarly articles in peer-reviewed journals. He is currently researching the concept of idolatry in Second Temple Judaism and early Christianity, as well as investigating Paul’s theological beliefs in the first two chapters of Romans.
