William Carey Centre Names
The William Carey Centre for Excellence in Ministry at Carey Theological College is excited to announce the appointment of its inaugural Research Fellows for 2019-2020, Raphael Chow and Paul Worden. The appointment of Fellows is a historic way of encouraging graduate and post-graduate students to contribute their research to the growth of their institution, whilst working on their doctoral projects. Carey’s Centre for Excellence was formed to provide an avenue for pastors, ministry leaders and academics to contribute to the expansion of ministry recourses for the global church. The appointment of Carey’s inaugural Fellows serves to achieve the essential vision of our Centre. According to Dr. William Brackney, Pioneer MacDonald Chair in Baptist Theology and Ethics and Director of the Centre of Excellence, “the Centre Fellows are recognized for the high standard of work in our doctoral program, and will provide limited service in building the Centre’s resources in global Christianity.”
We are pleased to welcome these two exemplar Christian leaders as partners in empowering faithful Christian leaders for every generation, culture, and community.
