The work of London Seminary probably owes more, under God, to Philip Eveson – together with his wife, Jenny – than to any other individual.
Mr Eveson’s retirement this year from the seminary Board comes after fifty years of uninterrupted and devoted service to the life of the seminary and its forerunner, the Kensit Memorial Bible College.
It was in 1973 that Mr Eveson started at the Kensit College for the training of Wickliffe Preachers, subsequently becoming Principal.
In 1977, LTS was established and the first students were admitted with Mr Eveson as resident tutor. He became Principal of the seminary in 1997, retiring (though continuing to lecture regularly) in 2009, at which point he was appointed to the Board of the seminary.
