The Impact of CML

Since its founding in 2015, CML has impacted theological students at St. Andrew’s Hall/VST as well as resourcing the wider church, through Dr. Ross Lockhart’s speaking and publications on missional theology. Here are three recent graduates blessing the Presbyterian Church in Canada through their missional education:

  1. Mark Carter – Mark graduated in the spring with his Master of Divinity from Regent College and Presbyterian studies at VST. Mark has recently accepted an appointment as a Lay Missionary with special training in the PCC Cariboo house church network in northern B.C. He is excited to practice missional leadership with the good people of the Cariboo region.
  2. Andrea Perrett – Andrea graduated with her MDiv from VST last year and has begun a ThM in Missional Theology, while working part-time as CML associate in church planting at St. Andrew’s Hall. She has also been appointed as the Cyclical director for the Presbytery of Calgary-Macleod.
  3. Young Tae Choi – Young Tae holds a Master of Divinity for Regent College and a Diploma in Presbyterian studies from VST. In September he was ordained as an Assistant Minister at Richmond Presbyterian Church, with a focus on developing an Arts-based ministry for the neighbourhood. A former filmmaker, Young Tae is eager to apply missional theology principles to an Arts ministry in the lower mainland.
