“The establishment of a Reformed House at Wycliffe College is a most encouraging development.  Wycliffe has long had a reputation for academic excellence in the Anglican tradition and to see that now broadened into the Reformed world is great news.  I hope the House proves a significant source of spiritual and intellectual vitality for the Reformed churches in Canada.”
