Krish Kandiah to be LST President

29 August 2014


DR KRISH KANDIAH of the Evangelical Alliance will succeed Lord Carey as President of the London School of Theology (LST), it was announced last week.

Dr Kandiah is currently executive director of churches in mission at the Evangelical Alliance. He also chairs Tearfund's theological advisory panel. Before joining the Alliance, he was director of the Oxford Centre for Christian Apologetics, and a tutor in mission and evangelism at Wycliffe Hall. He was also a member of the University of Oxford's theology faculty. He will remain director of Home for Good, the organisation he founded to encourage churches to play a greater part in fostering and adoption.

The statement announcing his appointment said that the position of President, traditionally an "outward-facing role", had evolved, so that Dr Kandiah would be "responsible for the overall academic and spiritual leadership", and play "an active role in the day-to-day life of the school". He would be given the task of promoting "the value of theological education across the wider Evangelical world".

On Friday, Dr Kandiah said that the School had "helped shape so much of the Evangelical landscape in the UK and beyond".
