New Moore faculty member appointed
We are delighted to announce that the Moore College Governing Board has accepted the Principal’s nomination of the Rev Mark Earngey to join the College faculty from 1 September this year.
Mark will come to us, we trust, with a freshly-minted D.Phil. from the University of Oxford, where he has been studying Reformation theology and history under the supervision of Professor Diarmaid MacCulloch. He expects to submit his thesis in June.
Mark is a graduate of the College who has served in Anglican churches in North Sydney, Strathfield and Toongabbie. He and his wife Tanya, along with their three children, Grace (5), Simeon (4) and Sophia (1), are currently sharing in the work of St Ebbes Church in Oxford.
Mark is well known for his enthusiasm, his clear thinking and his warm and effective pastoral care. He is a fine, engaging communicator. Mark has co-edited a book which seeks to provide resources from the Reformation for contemporary liturgies and has been working on a more popular book on singleness.
Our Principal, Dr Mark Thompson, remarked “It is a matter of great thanksgiving to God that Mark Earngey should be available to join us at this time. His commitment to parish ministry, his deep roots in the Reformation and its theology, his enthusiasm and genuine friendliness, not to mention his gifts as a teacher and scholar, will further strengthen our faculty for the years ahead.”
Mark Earngey has commented, “The Earngey family are really excited at the prospect of re-joining and serving the Moore College community. I’m particularly looking forward to the teaching and pastoral work of the College, which I want to do to the glory of God and the well being of his people.”All News
