Before coming to Wycliffe College in 1997, John Bowen worked for many years with Inter-Varsity Christian Fellowship of Canada. He teaches courses on evangelism and culture, church planting, leadership, preaching, and evangelistic teaching, and brings to the classroom a particular interest in lay leadership, the spirituality of movies and the theology of C.S.Lewis and the Inklings. John's second responsibility at the College is to direct the Institute of Evangelism, which was begun in 1991 to provide resources in evangelism and congregational development for the church across Canada. In this capacity, he speaks and leads workshops at conferences for clergy and lay leaders. He also edits and writes for two series of booklets, one evangelistic (The Dare Booklets), the other practical manuals for church leaders (The Wycliffe Booklets on Evangelism). The Institute also produces good idea!, a twice-yearly magazine about congregational evangelism. Originally from Wales, John is married to Deborah, an English professor; they have two adult children.
B.Sc.(Toronto), M.Rel., Th.M., Th.D. (Wycliffe), D.Cn.L. (Emmanuel & St. Chad).
After completing his doctorate in 1982 (at Wycliffe), Terry Donaldson taught for seventeen years in Saskatoon at the College of Emmanuel and St. Chad, the Anglican seminary on the campus of the University of Saskatchewan. In 1999, he returned to Toronto where he took up his present position in New Testament at Wycliffe College. His teaching and research interests include: Matthew; Paul; hermeneutics; Second-Temple Judaism; Gentilization of early Christianity, and early Christian-Jewish relations. As well as books, he has published about thirty-five journal articles or chapters, and many reviews. His current research project has to do with ethnicity, identity and the emergence of Gentile Christianity. As a scholar, he is fascinated with the process by which the early church, from its beginnings as an eschatological renewal movement entirely within the Jewish environment, developed within a century or so into a largely Gentile religion, separate and distinct from the synagogue. As a Christian educator and layperson, he is concerned to lead students (and others) to a richer appreciation of the gospel that stands at the heart and centre both of the Bible and of the grand and richly diverse tradition of the church. Outside work Terry enjoys banjo-playing, ballroom dancing, bread-baking, camping, and cycling. Terry and his wife Lois live in downtown Toronto and are members of St. Aidan's parish. They have two adult children and one grandchild.
Alan Hayes has taught church history at Wycliffe since 1975, when he completed his Ph.D. in religious studies at McGill University, Montreal. His teaching and research specializations include Anglicanism, Canadian Protestantism, early Christianity, Reformation, and historiography. The public is welcome to visit his course materials, which he has published at his website. The historical theme which most interests him is the diversity of ways in which Christian institutions and spiritualities sometimes reflect and sometimes challenge the assumptions of their surrounding cultures. His most current research project is the history of theological education since the New Testament period. Alan is a member of the board of the Historical Society of the Episcopal Church, and an editor of Anglican and Episcopal History.He lives in Oakville, where he is honorary assistant priest at St. Simon's Anglican Church. On most Sundays, however, he can be seen slipping into worship services where no one knows him; he writes a column on these experiences for the Niagara Anglican. He is married to the Reverend Morar Murray-Hayes, the minister of Maple Grove United Church, Oakville, and they have two very clever, talented, and beautiful daughters and two rather homely and dim-witted dogs. He plays the piano better than he sings, prefers summer to winter, likes taking walks, and enjoys ballroom dancing.
