Dr. Grant LeMarquand, long-serving Professor of Biblical Studies and Mission at Trinity School for Ministry, has been appointed as Assistant Bishop to The Most Rev.

His consecration will take place on April 25th, St. Mark’s Day, in Cairo, Egypt and he will then be installed on October 27th in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.

Grant will continue teaching at Trinity until June of 2012. He and his wife Wendy plan to move to Gambella, Ethiopia in July or August.
