Trinity Western University’s president Jonathan Raymond is resigning for health reasons.
In an announcement about his decision to step aside after seven years as president at the private Christian university, he commented that his time in Langley has been some of the best of his life.
“It is a great blessing to serve at TWU . . . as the president of this remarkable university. Now, it is time to pass the baton to another and to devote time and attention to hopefully the full recovery of health and to the pursuit of other forms of ministry and mission,” said Raymond.
Raymond says he will make it a smooth transition. He will resign as of July 1.
TWU’s board of governors offered their “deep gratitude to Dr. Jonathan Raymond’s tenure.”
The board issued a statement saying Raymond represented TWU with the highest measure of integrity, dignity and wisdom.
The board said it is now ready to start looking for the university’s next president.
