Toronto Baptist Seminary Residence Ribbon Cutting

August 15, 2009

Having lived in the Toronto Baptist Seminary residence from March 2007-December 2007 (the top floor of House 18) I can readily say how much it badly needed to be gutted and redone. If I had been sending my children to TBS I don’t think I would have after I saw the residences!

But that has all changed through the blessing of God and the generous giving of His people. The ribbon cutting ceremony for the residence renovation will be on Saturday August 29 from 10:30 AM to 1:30 PM. Be sure to go, tour the residences, and see how God worked in the midst of Canada’s strongest theological school in the heart of Toronto!

There are still some funds that need to be raised to cover the costs of this radical transformation so please consider donating now here. For more details on what has been done in the renovation including pictures go here.

Moving On

December 22, 2007
Well, it is almost time to move again. One day I think God will put me in a permanent place where I can put down roots.
Tomorrow is my last day here at TBS. I’ve only been here since March but have made a lot of good friends, and had many wonderful experiences here in this short amount of time. Let me tell you about a few things I will miss…
1) My funny friend Keith Edwards, Registrar and Director of Development. Sometimes I wondered if I would get any work done!
2) My hard working co-worker Debbie. This place would fall apart without her!
3) My fearless boss Michael Haykin. I will never forget his laugh that you can hear a mile away, his stories of Marxist tendencies, a case of Mountain Dew, and the endless amounts of photocopying, editing, and running to the U of T I did for him!
4) My French friends, Pierre Constant and Ruth Labeth. They brought culture to our poor band of fellows here, even though we did tease them. Never let Keith translate for someone who speaks French!
5) Kirk Wellum, who even though he disagreed with me on areas of eschatology, still represented my position faithfully in his class (since I can hear him across the hall!). “Even Mr. Mickle would agree with that!”
6) Our part-time profs like Bob Penhearow, Stephen Yuille, Paul Martin, Leah Robinson, Sheila Evans, and anyone else I’m missing who brought variety to this place!
7) The powerful preaching of Glendon Thompson, pastor of Jarvis Street Baptist Church.
8) And of course all the students… from the hard workers who had stimulating conversation with me to the ones… who didn’t… who spent more time talking about Metalocalypse than they did Traducianism!
I will miss my role I had here, but obviously God has another place for me. I will not forget you all. You have all made an indelible impression on my life and I truly hope that we will have opportunities to minister together again one day (of course I’ll still be Michael Haykin’s lackey!).
Many blessings this Christmas season! Please continue to pray for God’s place for me in ministry!
