Getting to Know Your Exec

Rob Fennell

I have been Vice-President of CTS this past year, and for 2014-15, I will be President.  In past years, I served as Secretary, and was active as a student member.  CTS is a vibrant and interesting Canadian venue for a rich exchange of research and wisdom in the theological disciplines.  I hope that you will continue to support and take an interest in CTS – together we are better.

Since 2006, I have taught Historical and Systematic Theology at Atlantic School of Theology in Halifax.  Prior to that, I served with local congregations in various places for 10 years.  I am ordained in the United Church of Canada.  My research interests are principally concerned with interpretation, and especially theological interpretation of Scripture.  Adjunct to this I have lively interests in Christology, Trinity, ecclesiology, post-Christendom Christian witness, and thinkers such as D. Bonhoeffer, J. Moltmann, and C.S. Lewis.

Another project in which I am actively involved is Touchstone, a Canadian theological journal, for which I serve as chair of the editorial board.  Finally, I am directing a new venture called Camino Nova Scotia.  You can read about it here:

I look forward to seeing you at our annual conference, and to keeping in touch by email and Facebook.
