Faculty Roundtable is a time to get to know members of the teaching team at Regent College—full-time faculty, visiting professors, and friends.

This week’s discussion features Dr. Mark Noll and Dr. Paul Pearce assessing the current state of the Church in Canada. Bringing the perspectives of history (Dr. Noll) and applied theology (Dr. Pearce) to bear on our current context, the discussion will illuminate not only the roots of today’s Canadian church context, but offer suggestions of how we might foster a richer engagement between church and modern Canadian culture.

Mark Noll is a leading church historian. He recently retired as the Francis A. McAnaney Professor of History at the University of Notre Dame, having previously served as Professor of History and Theological Studies at Wheaton College. He is currently a Research Professor at Regent College.

Paul Pearce is currently involved as the director of the Centre for Healthy Aging Transitions (CHAT), which is an emerging ministry of the Carey Institute in Vancouver. CHAT offers seminars, resources and other consultation opportunities to address the challenges and opportunities presented by an unprecedented growth in the older adult demographic, as a result of the aging boomer generation. He has served in a variety of leadership, pastoral and administrative roles across Canada. He served as the Executive Director of the Beulah Garden Homes Society in East Vancouver, in a number of ministry capacities across western Canada, as an educator in Ontario, and as a pastor and a CBWC denominational staff leader in Calgary, Edmonton, Toronto and Vancouver.

You are invited to bring your lunch and join us in room 100 for what is sure to be a lively discussion.
