A recent article publish on Christian Week's website features Wycliffe Professor John Bowen. The article is title, "Examining leadership: A chat with Wycliffe's John Bowen"
An excerpt from the article:
"Wycliffe College evangelism professor John Bowen has spent a lot of time around university campuses. His years of study and teaching have led him to re-examine Christian leadership.
While working as a high school teacher, he says he decided he "needed more depth of understanding of faith," which fuelled his decision to attend seminary at Trinity College in Bristol, UK. After graduating, Bowen spent 24 years working for Inter-Varsity Christian Fellowship, leading campus chapters, counselling students and later working as an itinerant evangelist. But in 1994, he decided to turn the tables once again, returning to school at McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario, to pursue his Doctorate of Ministry.
"I was going across the country, speaking in universities and often I felt like I was reinventing the wheel," Bowen explains. "I was teaching the Christian students the same stuff about faith and outreach, doing the same evangelistic talks and I thought, 'I need more input for myself.' So it seemed like the right thing to do."
