I first came to Trinity for study leave in January 2005 after ten years of ordained ministry in the London Diocese. I was delighted by what I found. The commitment to the authority of Scripture and to mission in this country and overseas is very stimulating indeed. It is a great place to be and strategic for the future of the Gospel in the States and beyond. My best moment at Trinity has been the response I had to the announcement of my becoming Dean and President. It was truly overwhelming. I have never felt more wanted and more loved. What a great place to be for my family and for me.
