To guide us in the discernment process to choose a new Minister in 2017, Glen Davis has been appointed Interim Moderator.
Glen was born in Cape Breton, NS, and studied at McGill (B.A.), Presbyterian College (M.Div. and D.D.), the University of Chicago and Knox College (M.Th). He and his wife, Joyce, spent 15 years serving in the Korean Christian Church in Japan where they learned to speak Korean and Japanese.
Subsequently, Glen worked for 18 years at the national office of the PCC where he served as International Ministries Secretary and General Secretary of the Life and Mission Agency. He and Joyce served seven years as co-ministers of Knox PC in Agincourt, Toronto, after which they moved to Vancouver where Glen taught Presbyterian students at the Vancouver School of Theology. He served as Moderator of the General Assembly in 2000, and is now working part time for the Presbyterian College, Montreal. He is active in social justice issues, and is committed to the care for God’s creation, and the need to transition gradually from fossil fuel dependence to renewable and sustainable energy sources.
Glen is an incurable fan of the Montreal Canadiens, but the Canucks are okay too. However, if you are a Leafs fan, keep your distance! He is an incompetent golfer, but is not bad at tennis and squash (if anyone wants a game!) Glen and Joyce have three children and seven grandchildren. He looks forward to working with the congregation as it considers its options for future ministry leadership.
