Biography

After completing his DPhil (PhD) in theology in the UK, Peter has served the church and the academy in a number of ways.  He has been an associate priest and incumbent in the Anglican Church in the diocese of Toronto, and an adjunct professor at Wycliffe College and Tyndale Seminary.  He continues to serve in the Diocese of Toronto as an honorary assistant and a member of the Postulancy Committee and the Doctrine and Worship Committee.   

Peter is particularly interested in the working relationship between the Church and the academy, and how the life of the Church and her ministry are shaped by God—Father, Son and Spirit—along with our knowing and living responsively to and with God.  His current research and teaching interests focus on the relationship between mission and formation in the church.
