For Immediate ReleaseThe Rev. Dr. Grant LeMarquand

AMBRIDGE, PA - December 8, 2011 - The Rev. 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. Dr. Mouneer Hanna Anis with particular responsibility as Area Bishop for the Horn of Africa. 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 is a great choice for this appointment. He and his wife Wendy have extensive experience as missionaries which should prepare them well for this new calling," remarked the Very Rev. Dr. Justyn Terry, Trinity's Dean and President. "We will certainly miss his presence on the Trinity Faculty, but we wish him every blessing as he embarks on this new phase of ministry."

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.

Trinity School for Ministry is an evangelical seminary in the Anglican tradition. Begun in 1976, the seminary has trained more than 1,000 students from all over the worldwide Anglican Communion. As a global center for Christian formation, Trinity continues to produce outstanding leaders who can plant, renew, and grow churches that make disciples of Jesus Christ.

Grant LeMarquands appointment

Grant has that heart for Africa, especially, the North.God will use him to provide ministry in the horn of Africa.Am happy to hear this news.

Wow! I have mixed feelings about this. Although Grant will do great as a bishop, he is equally a 'called' academic. I pray the Lord will find a suitable replacement for him at Trinity. May the Good Lord bless Grant and DR Wendy in their new assignment.

Grant as teacher

If not for Grant's patience and understanding, I would still be at Trinity trying to grasp the first three pages of the Greek grammer book. If not for his grasp of Mission, I would probably not think there was a world beyond the parish level. If not for his friendship, I would still think, as I did before I came to Trinity, that teacher/presbyters were probably arrogant, stuffy old men and women. America's and Canada's loss is Ethiopias gain. God bless you, Grant!
