Taylor Seeks New Director of Finance
Taylor College and Seminary has initiated a search for a new Director of Finance, following the announcement that current Director of Finance and Operations, Marj Hewitt, will retire in the summer.
Marj came to Taylor in January of 2014 and brought with her a wealth of experience in post-secondary education. She has become a trusted colleague and good friend over the past several years, and while we will miss her greatly, we extend our warmest wishes for a long and happy retirement.
The search for a replacement is underway, and Taylor invites you to share this opportunity with those who may be interested in this exciting opportunity. Details can be found here, on the Taylor Jobs Board.

Tributes for Dr. Jim Leverette (1955-2017)
Friends and colleagues are remembering Dr. Jim Leverette as a gifted and dedicated leader who loved the church. Jim's unexpected death on December 18 while on a ministry trip within Alberta came as a shock to many.
Jim was a former Academic Vice President of the seminary, and was a strong supporter of Taylor, and in his role as the Regional Minister for the Alberta Baptist Association was a strong proponent of the continuing education offered through the E P Wahl Centre. President Dr. David Williams worked quite closely with him.
"Jim Leverette loved the church, and valued theological education," said Dr. Williams. "He was deeply committed to Taylor and we are far better off because of the time he spent in our midst. During my time with him I learned to lean on his wise counsel and to appreciate his insight. He will be greatly missed. Rest in Peace, my brother and friend."
