October 16, 2017
Staff Leaving

The Board for Christian Formation (BCF) has endorsed and the Synod Standing Committee (SSC) has last week accepted Rev Dr Peter Hobson’s request that his placement with Trinity College Queensland be concluded.

Peter has resigned from the position of Dean of Formation and Dispersed Learning and his placement conclude on the 31st December.  Peter joined Trinity in January 2017 and has enjoyed teaching and mentoring students and candidates and helping to theologically educate the wider church through dispersed learning hubs.  A service will be held at the end of the year to mark the conclusion of his placement with the college.

The College will miss Peter’s contribution to regrowing the student body. Even so, we look forward to working with him in the future.

The BCF will begin looking for a suitable replacement.
