The Appointment of Revd Greg Downes | 18th Jul 2017
"Wycliffe Hall is delighted to announce the appointment of the Revd Greg Downes as its new Director of Ministerial Training.
Greg is currently Theologian and Missioner at St Michael le Belfrey in York.
He has been a lecturer at the London School of Theology and, more recently, St Hild College, and is a member of the Archbishop’s College of Evangelists.
He has ministered on five continents, been a school teacher, prison & university chaplain and stood for election as an MP.
He is married to Tamie, a GP, and they have two young daughters, Anastasia & Trinity.
He says of his appointment: “Having trained at Wycliffe Hall over two decades ago, I am greatly looking forward to returning and having the privilege of heading up the provision of ministerial training there. If we are to see the re-evangelisation of this land we need a new breed of missional leaders with minds transformed and hearts on fire and I’m excited to join an outstanding faculty, and play my part in helping this become a reality”
The Principal of Wycliffe Hall, Michael Lloyd, commented: ‘I am very excited by this appointment. Greg’s experience and expertise as an evangelist will help Wycliffe to fulfil its Mission Aim to train lifelong disciple-makers – which is simply what is needed if we are to be faithful to the Great Commission, and if the church is to grow and flourish in the twenty-first century. We look forward enormously to having Greg and Tamie as part of the Wycliffe community.’
Greg will start full-time on January 1st 2018 but will visit Wycliffe fortnightly in the Michaelmas term."
