This weekend we welcome the Dean President of Trinity School for Ministry, The Very Rev. Dr. Justyn Terry to Resurrection. Justyn, a gifted pastor and teacher, has been serving as Trinity’s Dean President for the last 8 years. In that time he has strengthened the faculty, increased enrollment, expanded online courses, and successfully led a $15.3 million dollar capital campaign.
Trinity School for Ministry is an Anglican seminary in the evangelical tradition. Established in 1975 under the leadership of Bishop Alf Stanway, Peter Moore, John Guest, J.I Packer, and John Rodgers, Trinity has trained over 400 rectors and church leaders in its short history. A key part of
the Anglican renewal movement, Trinity is uniquely positioned to train leaders for the next generation of Anglican churches.
I had the privilege of receiving my Master of Divinity at Trinity in 2005. Resurrection hired summer intern Ethan Harrison from Trinity last summer. We will also welcome 2016 Trinity graduate David Pennylegion to our staff as a pastoral resident in July. Resurrection annually supports Trinity financially and recently made a $10,000 pledge to the Trinity Campaign from our outreach tithe.
Justyn Terry has been a stalwart ambassador for the gospel, for Anglicanism, and for Trinity School for Ministry. He will be stepping down from leadership in June to return to his native England to pursue pastoral and teaching leadership in the Church of England. I am currently serving on the search team for the new Dean President.
It is a wonderful privilege to have Justyn with us this weekend before he leaves Trinity. Please join me in welcoming him and praying that the Lord richly blesses him, Trinity, and our weekend together.
