MACON, Ga. (AP) - A Mercer University administrator is going to head a Baptist seminary in the west African nation of Liberia.

The chairman of Mercer's Christianity department, Richard F. Wilson, will serve as president of the Liberia Baptist Theological Seminary on an interim basis.

Wilson will serve in the position for a year starting Jan. 1.

The seminary was founded in 1976 and has 110 students with 15 faculty members. There is no electricity except for large diesel-powered generators, and no running water throughout the country.

Wilson has traveled to Liberia nine times in the last seven years, including five trips with a Mercer missions program.
