Canon Dr Peter Adam will resign as Principal of Ridley Melbourne at the end of study and long service leave in January 2012.
In announcing his decision, Board Chair, Claire Rogers, reflected on Dr Adam’s service to Ridley: “Peter has exercised significant biblical and theological leadership across Australia and internationally. His distinguished service of the College over several decades includes Board Member, Adjunct Lecturer and most recently as Principal.”
“While tirelessly teaching, preaching, mentoring and writing, for a decade of students, he has also been instrumental in helping Ridley achieve financial stability, a skilful leadership team, strategic focus and an academic faculty of great strength”, Ms Rogers said. “We acknowledge that this hasn’t been an easy decision for Peter, one that has been underpinned by much prayer, consultation and reflection.”
Dr Adam, reflecting on his time at Ridley, said “I thank God for the great privilege of serving as Principal of Ridley over the last ten years. It has been a great pleasure to work with faculty, staff, students, supporters, and the Board, to grow and develop this vital and strategic ministry. I pray that God will provide for Ridley, and continue his rich blessing on the training of men and women for gospel ministry throughout the world.”
