Following the successful completion of his PhD, Tony Payne is stepping aside from the directorship of the Centre for Christian Living (CCL) at the end of this year. He will take on new ministry responsibilities at UNSW’s Campus Bible Study (CBS).
‘Tony has been a brilliant director of CCL. He has extended the Centre’s work in exciting new areas, organised and chaired a series of brilliant seminars and established a regular podcast on significant issues. I am very grateful for all that he has done.’
While we are sad to see Tony leave this role, we are delighted to announce that in 2020 CCL will be directed by Dr Chase Kuhn, who lectures in theology and ethics at the College.
Tony Payne has written:
‘One consolation in finishing up as Director of CCL is knowing that Dr Chase Kuhn will be stepping into the role. Chase is a deep thinker and a compelling speaker, and it has been a joy to teach ethics alongside him at College over the past three years. I am sure that CCL will thrive under his leadership.’
Dr Thompson added:
‘I am very glad that Chase has agreed to take on this responsibility. He is passionate about resourcing Christians with ways to think about what is happening in our world and maintaining a biblical perspective in the midst of a rapidly changing context for Christian discipleship and ministry.’
‘I’m excited to take the mantle of directing the Centre for Christian Living. There is much to explore at the intersection of biblical faith and every day issues. I am prayerful that the Lord will continue to use the Centre to resource Christians to think theologically about their place in God’s world as ambassadors for Christ.’
CCL events in 2020 will be announced soon.
Please pray for Tony in his move to CBS and Chase as he takes on the role of CCL Director.
