The Church of Ireland Theological Institute is delighted to announce the appointment of two part–time members of staff with effect from 2nd April 2013: the Revd Jennifer McWhirter as Co–ordinator of Continuing Ministerial Education and Mr David Brown as Co–ordinator of Lay Training.

Mrs McWhirter is currently serving as Vicar of Templepatrick and Donegore and has had significant pastoral experience in the area of hospital chaplaincy both in Ireland and North America. Mr Brown has served in Canterbury Diocese and for the past eleven years as Director of the Church of Ireland Youth Department.

Commenting on the appointments, the Director of Church of Ireland Theological Institute, the Revd Dr Maurice Elliott, said, ‘We are grateful to the Church of Ireland Priorities Fund for enabling us to realise these exciting new positions. CITI is now well placed to deliver further on aspects of its original vision such as life–long learning and an expanding culture of lay training across the Church of Ireland. Jennifer and David will each bring excellent qualities to the respective roles. We are looking forward to welcoming them as members of our collaborative staff team.’
