Dean of Students retires after 21 years of service

Geoff Richardson has been at Regent's Theological College for the last 21 years, working under four past and present College Principals.  After serving the Elim movement for over 30 years, Geoff retired this summer.

Gathering together in Malvern, friends, college and centre staff celebrated Geoff's service and significant contribution that he has made in the lives of many pastors within the movement.

Geoff had a number of roles at the College. He was Bursar for several years, Director of Undergraduate Studies and more latterly Dean of Students. Before Regents, he was Pastor of an Elim Church in Brighton. His first career was in Human Resources management, having worked for Ford Motor Company in Dagenham and the Dowty Group in Cheltenham. At the College, Geoff taught subjects connected with Christian Ministry, including Homiletics, Christian Discipleship and Spirituality in Ministry.

At his retirement party held at the Elim International Centre were four College Principals that Geoff has served under. Seen in the above picture, from left to right, are William Atkinson, Dave Newton, Geoff Richardson, John Smyth and Nigel Tween.
