With summer comes transition, and we’re excited to welcome one new editor to The Gospel Coalition as we say farewell to another beloved colleague.
Quina Aragon is not new to TGC, but in 2020 she’s new to our editorial staff as assistant editor and administrative assistant for women’s initiatives. For several years she’s contributed to TGC, including a chapter in the book Lost and Found: How Jesus Helped Us Discover Our True Selves (watch her testimony) and her spoken-word short film, Listen & Live. She resides in Tampa, Florida, with her husband, Jon, and 4-year-old daughter. Jon and Quina are members of Living Faith Bible Fellowship, pastored by TGC Council member Darryl Williamson. Quina’s children’s book, Love Made (Harvest House, 2019), helps children and parents view creation through a Trinitarian lens. Already we have benefited from Quina’s editorial insights and instincts, and we look forward to featuring her ongoing work, on stage and behind the scenes.
Jeff Robinson departs TGC, where he has served as senior editor since 2014. Jeff continues to pastor Christ Fellowship Church in Louisville, Kentucky, and will take up a new role as director of news and information at his alma mater, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. We brought Jeff to TGC in order to oversee coverage of Bible, theology, and ministry. Jeff led TGC’s shift into publishing resources that would encourage pastors to endure in ministry.
To that end Jeff acquired hundreds of articles by and for pastors. And he and I edited three books: 15 Things Seminary Couldn’t Teach Me (Crossway, 2018), 12 Faithful Men: Portraits of Courageous Endurance in Pastoral Ministry (Baker, 2018), and Faithful Endurance: The Joy of Shepherding a People for a Lifetime (Crossway, 2019). He is also author of the forthcoming book Taming the Tongue: How the Gospel Transforms Our Talk (TGC, 2021). Jeff will be greatly missed by me and his colleagues, as we pray for God’s blessing on him and Lisa and their four children.
