It is my pleasure to welcome the Rev. Canon John Kafwanka to VTS for the next few weeks. Canon Kafwanka is the Director for Mission at the Anglican Communion Office in London. In this role, he promotes Communion-wide initiatives related to intentional discipleship, empowerment of young people and women in the Church, and care for the environment.
Canon Kafwanka is participating in the Communion Sabbaticals program hosted by the Center for Anglican Communion Studies. Next week, he will join Dr. Robert Heaney as one of the keynote speakers at the Global Episcopal Mission Network (GEMN) conference, here at VTS April 11-13. VTS students, staff, and faculty will also have an opportunity to converse with Canon Kafwanka at a lunchtime forum on Monday, April 16.
I do hope you will join me in welcoming Canon Kafwanka to VTS and take the opportunity to get to know him.
The Very Rev. Ian S. Markham, Ph.D. Dean and President
