Blair Monie holds a BA in English from Bloomsburg University in Pennsylvania (1970), a Master of Divinity from Princeton Theological Seminary (1973), and a Doctor of Ministry from Princeton Theological Seminary (1979), where his doctoral thesis focused on the supervision of seminarians in field education. Dr. Monie has served as pastor of churches in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Texas—most recently as senior pastor of Preston Hollow Presbyterian Church in Dallas, where he served for 19 years.
Consistently committed to theological education, he supervised students in Princeton’s “Teaching Church” program for nine years, and was a reader of DMin qualifying examinations for nine years at Princeton Seminary. As a member of the General Assembly Council of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), he chaired the Congregational Ministries Division and served on the Committee on Theological Education. In 2006, Dr. Monie chaired the Ecclesiology Committee of the 217th General Assembly, with responsibility for the Report of the Peace, Unity, and Purity Task Force of the denomination. For four years at Preston Hollow, he mentored new seminary graduates in the Lilly Pastoral Residency program.
Having served for nine years as a trustee of Austin Seminary, in 2013, Monie was honored by a generous gift of Robert and Mary Wright of Dallas, establishing the Blair R. Monie Distinguished Chair in Homiletics. Monie is author of “Seven Days to Glory,” a study of Holy Week, published by the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.). He also serves on the Board of Trustees of Princeton Theological Seminary.
