For everything there is a season

June 2011

Martin Luther King Jr. told us to "take the first step in faith. You don't have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step." I am taking that first step in my own life and ministry by pursuing a ministry opportunity with the Samaritan's Purse/Billy Graham Evangelistic Association of Canada.

As your Alumni Director the past three years, I have been blessed to see God at work in your lives as you take your own steps of faith; walking out His call and advancing His kingdom.

It has always been my desire to see my fellow Tyndale alumni connected to and cared for by our school, and in that spirit I am pleased to announce that Reverend Dr. Robert G. Patterson will be the new Alumni-Church Relations Director at Tyndale. We as Tyndale alumni are in good hands as Rob brings a wealth of ministry experience and a love for alumni and the school. Please support and encourage Rob in this new and exciting time.






Allan Marriage

The alumni of Tyndale University, College & Seminary are making a difference for Christ in the marketplace, in the church and on the mission field. This alumni family now numbers over 9000 people. What a joy and honor it is to give leadership to this family, my new family of friends.

It is with sadness that we say goodbye to Allan Marriage, and thank him for his years of service to Tyndale and to the alumni department. We wish every blessing upon him as he begins his work in another area of God's vineyard, with Samaritan's purse/ Billy Graham Evangelistic Association of Canada.

I look forward to communicating with all of you, and meeting as many of you as possible. It is an exciting time at Tyndale and the alumni family have a lot to look forward to. With many new programs, the opening up of a new campus, and the development of new departments I look forward to sharing this journey with our alumni family.

I bring to our Alumni a love for the church, a passion for mission and a desire to build Christ's kingdom through Tyndale graduates. Please know that I appreciate hearing from you and working with you as together we serve as Christ's ambassadors in Canada and around the world.
