 8. New Appointment

It is with great pleasure that as Chair of the Board of Pine Hill Divinity Hall, I (Rev. Bonnie Fraser) am able to announce that the Executive of the Board approved the recommendation of the Search Committee to engage the Reverend Dr I. Ross Bartlett as Formation Director for United Church of Canada students at Atlantic School of Theology.  Dr. Bartlett is currently fulfilling the role of Formation Director and his new term will begin immediately following completion of his present appointment.

Dr. Bartlett, who is adjunct faculty at AST, has been involved in education for ministry since the early 1990s at Queen’s Theological College, working both in-classroom and on-line as those technologies have expanded and developed.  He has extensive experience with the various courts of the United Church of Canada, with which the Director must relate.  His latest publication “Speaking Church; A New Vision for the Sub/Urban Congregation” will no doubt be a useful resource to students, educators and preachers.   https://www.irossbartlett.com/

We wish to extend our thanks to the Search Committee for all their work and wish Rev Dr Bartlett much joy and reward during his time in this ministry.
