Excellent news comes via the Northern Baptist Learning Community website:
New Tutor in New Testament Studies
We are absolutely delighted to announce that we have appointed a new full-time Tutor in New Testament Studies to the Staff Team of NBLC and to the wider teaching community of Luther King House.
He is Revd Jonathan Tallon, an anglican, currently Priest in Charge in the Parish of Cadishead on the edge of Manchester in the direction of Liverpool.
The Appointing Group were unanimously thrilled in making this appointment. Jonathan presented himself as a person who will bring freshness and real strength to our staff team. He is an experienced minister, who has served in a variety of challenging contexts, very much committed to mission and ministry. He has excellent academic and teaching skills, currently working on his PhD in the University of Manchester, and already very much involved on the regional teaching programme of the SNWTP in which we share.
Jonathan will take up the appointment on 1st November 2009, beginning teaching in earnest in the second semester.
Please rejoice with us in this appointment, praying for Jonathan and his family as they begin to negotiate a demanding move.
