Vancouver School of Theology is pleased to announce the appointment of The Very Reverend Dr. Peter Elliott as Interim Director of Anglican Formation and The Reverend Elizabeth Ruder-Celiz as Associate Anglican Formation Director effective January 1, 2022. We are grateful to Peter and Elizabeth for taking up this important work and excited by the wisdom and experience they bring to the school as a whole. President Richard Topping said, “I am thrilled by these important interim appointments for the school.” Peter and Elizabeth will serve in these positions until May 31, 2022.

The Reverend Grant Rodgers, current Director of Anglican Formation and Studies, retires effective December 31, 2021. We are grateful to Grant for the faithful service he has given to the school and the church. The students love him. President Topping said, “We will miss Grant’s wisdom, collaborative spirit, dedication to the students and good humour.” Grant will teach a course at VST in the spring semester in his early retirement!

VST has made these interim appointments to ensure that our Anglican students are well supported in formation for ministry. We expect that the search for Grant’s permanent successor will result in an appointment effective July 1, 2022. A search committee is already at work.
