James Detrich, Anglican Studies Student

“The Certificate in Anglican Studies at Wycliffe College has given me access to some of the best instruction on how to lead and manage a parish as well as how to think theologically. The rich history and theology that you will learn—to say nothing of the deep formative experiences of the prayer services and weekly Eucharist—will serve to mold and shape you into a better informed and more robustly formed servant for the Lord’s work.”
