The Moore College Centre for Global Mission seeks to serve Christian churches and other organisations around the world in the propagation of the gospel through the provision of faithful theological education resources. In pursuing this mission, the Centre has forged a number of significant partnerships, such as those with MOCLAM, African Enterprise and numerous others in Asia, Africa and the subcontinent. The Centre is pleased to announce a further partnership with GAFCON, a movement of confessing Anglicans seeking to promote gospel faithfulness throughout the Anglican Communion.
Moore College has been heavily involved with GAFCON from its beginnings. We have been determined to stand with other faithful Anglicans around the world, many of whom have suffered significant loss for teaching and living in accordance with the teaching of Scripture. A number of the College faculty have played important roles in the movement and attended each of the three GAFCON Conferences (Jerusalem 2008, Nairobi 2013, Jerusalem 2018). Partnership with GAFCON is not something new to us.
It is critical for the future health of the churches that theological education across the globe prepares men and women to be workers who “have no need to be ashamed, rightly handling the word of truth”. Developing relationships and sharing resources is a way of strengthening theological colleges around the world, many of whom are under intense pressure to adjust their teaching programs to fit in with a liberal revisionist agenda. GAFCON has set up a network of theological educators to establish and nurture international partnerships between Anglican theological colleges.
Later this year, the Rev Dr Bill Salier will commence as Consultant in the GAFCON Theological Educators’ Network. Dr Salier’s extensive experience in theological education, and his gifts as a scholar and teacher, make him ideal for this role. His responsibility will be undertaken under the umbrella of CGM, as a vital component of the centre’s interest in the advance of faithful gospel ministry throughout the world.
Dr Salier commented, “I am excited by this opportunity to consult with theological educators in the GAFCON network, and I am grateful to Moore College and the CGM for providing an ideal platform of support. I am looking forward to seeing how the Lord will use this role to further his purposes.”
“Bill Salier’s appointment to the Gafcon Theological Education Network through a cooperative venture with Moore College’s Centre for Global Mission is a great step forward. Together we will continue to work to see bible-based training available to Gospel Workers around the world.”
Bishop Malcolm Richards, Director, Centre for Global Mission, Moore Theological College
“Bill Salier is an ideal person to take on the role of consultant. He has large experience, deep learning and a personal warmth which enables people to talk with him easily. I am grateful to the Lord for his willingness to take on this role.”
Bishop Peter Jensen, Director of the GAFCON Theological Educators’ Network
