Tyndale University welcomes Dorothy Pang to her new role as Director of the Tyndale Intercultural Ministries (TIM) Centre.

Dorothy brings 27 years of experience in law, business and executive leadership to the Director’s role. She is passionate about creating collaborative environments where diverse teams can thrive, and organizational health is optimized. Dorothy received a Certificate in Intercultural Studies from UBC and is a qualified administrator of the Intercultural Development Inventory (ID) and a certified facilitator of the Intercultural Conflict Styles (ICS) assessment.

Dorothy is also a dynamic facilitator and public speaker. For 10 years, Dorothy was an executive leader of a large intercultural church in northeastern Toronto. She is passionate about helping churches embrace the “Rev. 7:9 Church,” a place where all are wholly seen, accepted and understood.

The TIM Centre offers church leaders and all who seek to further develop intercultural competency the opportunity for training that helps them prepare for the many challenges of fostering an increasingly diverse and inclusive ministry context. It does this through structured programs to help prepare for the challenges of serving and leading in a diverse and inclusive ministry context, as well as providing opportunities for research, consulting and networking.

“When I think about the work of the TIM Centre, two powerful images come to mind - Acts 2 and Revelations 7:9. These passages depict gatherings of diverse cultures, languages, and backgrounds all coming together in Spirit-led understanding and unity, inviting each person to contribute their cultural gifts to enrich the community of God's new family.

I believe our churches and faith communities today can serve as beacons pointing towards this future vision.  It is important to me, and to the TIM Centre team, to facilitate spaces for learning and development as we join together in this transformative and redemptive process.  I consider it a holy stewardship,” says Dorothy.

Dorothy joined the TIM Centre in 2022 as Assistant Director to lead consulting initiatives. In the fall of 2023, following the sudden death of the Rev. Dr. Timothy Tang, the Centre’s then Director, Dorothy was named the Centre’s Interim Director. Tyndale University is thrilled that Dorothy has accepted the permanent role of Director. 

Dorothy is married and lives in Canada. When she’s not working, she enjoys exploring the multiethnic tastes and sounds of the city.
