On August 1, 1994, Angela and I and our two children moved to Bedford to begin the story of a church, that up to that point had only existed in our hearts. On January 8, 1995, the first small group started in our home… On April 9, 1995, we celebrated our first public worship service. On November 27, 2005, we celebrated our first public worship service in our new building. And October 18, 2020 will be remembered as the day we celebrated our first public worship service at Cornerstone Windgate…

It is always a privilege to chair our Kingswood University Board of Trustees. The fall BOT session took place via Zoom on Friday and included an exceptionally strong financial report, as well as an incoming freshman class which exceeded pandemic expectations. This year, 35% of the Ordinand Class of 2020 across The Wesleyan Church of our North American districts, more than one-third of our Ministers Ordained this year – received training from Kingswood University.
It was exactly 75 years ago this very month that 17 students formed the inaugural student body of the Holiness Bible Institute. For more history, read Art Maxwell’s Experiencing God’s Presence: The Story of Kingswood University 1945-2020. We are blessed by the adaptation and innovation of President Lennox and the Administrative Cabinet.

- If you exhort your people without training them, you’re setting them up for failure and guilt. You’re also creating a dependency relationship in which you, as the professional, do the ministry on their behalf. (Steve Addison)
- There are three qualifications of a pastor: 1) The heart of a child; 2) The mind of a scholar; and 3) The hide of a rhinoceros. (Stuart Briscoe)
