THE CURRENT Bishop of Algoma, the Rt Rev. Stephen Andrews, has been appointed the tenth Principal of Wycliffe College. He succeeds Dr. George Sumner who resigned last September after being elected the Bishop of Dallas.

Wycliffe College is a graduate theological school with 300 students and is affiliated with the University of Toronto and Toronto School of Theology.

“I am honoured to be associated with one of North America’s premier theological colleges,” Andrews said. “And I am grateful for the chance to work with such an outstanding board, faculty and staff in a mission to serve the Church by preparing leaders who are godly, learned and able.”

Bishop Andrews has worked in ministry, theological scholarship and higher education for over 30 years. He earned his Master of Divinity at Wycliffe College and holds a Doctor of Philosophy from the University of Cambridge.

“After eight months of prayerful deliberation, we are thrilled by this appointment and believe we have found a wonderful leader that is the right fit, in God’s right time, for Wycliffe College,” said Bob Hamilton, chair of the Board of Trustees and the Search Committee. “Stephen brings to the job an exceptional blend of scholarship, leadership and a deep experience in both the academy and the church. His leadership will allow Wycliffe to continue to bring innovative change to theological education. These attributes are what our community was looking for.”

“Personally, I am both eager and daunted in the face of this new challenge!” Andrews admitted. “But my wife, Fawna, and I believe that this is a wonderful opportunity and that God has been preparing us for this ministry.”   TAP
