TTC appoints Methodist as new Vice-Principal

Feb 2018    

As Trinity Theological College (TTC) celebrates its 70th Anniversary in 2018, it is also planning for the future. With the continuing mission of TTC as its priority, the Board of Governors has appointed the Rev Dr Edwin Tay as Vice-Principal of TTC, effective from 1 Jan 2018.

Since joining the faculty of TTC in January 2013, the Rev Dr Tay has served as Warden of the Family Residence and the Dean of Students. Prior to joining TTC, he served as Lecturer in Systematic and Historical Theology at the Biblical Graduate School of Theology (BGST). He is also a former staff-worker with the Fellowship of Evangelical Students.

The Rev Dr Tay spent the first 12 years of his formal education at the Anglo-Chinese School (ACS). He read for the B.A. Degree at the National University of Singapore, majoring in Psychology and Social Work. He first trained in Theology at the BGST, and subsequently pursued postgraduate studies at King’s College, University of London, where he obtained the M.A. Degree in Systematic Theology.

His increasing burden for theological education led to doctoral research at New College, University of Edinburgh, where he was awarded the Ph.D. for his dissertation on the priesthood of Christ.

The Rev Dr Tay is an ordained minister of the Chinese Annual Conference of The Methodist Church in Singapore. He grew up attending Telok Ayer Chinese Methodist Church.

He is married to Angela, and they have two daughters, Phoebe and Chloe.
