We would like to announce that Rubén Gómez is the new Director of the Jewish Christian Studies Program. Last year Rubén was appointed as a new tutor with KEDS to help build our modules on Israel, supersessionism, and messianic Jewish studies. He steps into the role of director after the departure of Dr Calvin Smith.
Rubén will be at the forefront of developing content on Jewish Christian Studies, as well as creating partnerships with other like-minded ministries, and forming dialogues between Evangelical, Messianic Jewish, and wider Jewish communities.
Please join us in congratulating Rubén on his new role.
KEDS is happy to announce the appointment of Dr Anthony Royle as the school's new Principal.
Anthony has been a tutor with KEDS since 2015 and became a Senior Tutor and BTh Programme lead in 2023. Over the last year, he has been working closely with Dr Calvin Smith with the view to succeed him at the end of 2023. Now, Anthony has already taken on the new role and is working with the board of trustees, admin staff, and faculty in working towards securing a new validating partner.
"It is an immense privilege to be the new KEDS Principal. KEDS is an excellent Christian higher education provider, which has lead the way in remote learning for many years. As a former student, I was grateful for the affordability and accessibility of the degree courses at KEDS. As an early career researcher, I am thankful for the opportunities awarded me to mark assignments, tutor students, deliver lectures, and supervise dissertations. It is my intention to develop the research culture and community spirit at KEDS for years to come. I would like to take the opportunity to honour Dr Calvin Smith for building this community and for everything he has done for this school. Dr Smith and his family have worked hard and sacrificed much to make KEDS what it is today. I have very big shoes to fill! But I am looking forward to the challenge and the work ahead."
Please join us in welcoming Anthony as the new KEDS Principal!
KEDS is excited to share a new initiative for the Knowing Your Bible programme.
Knowing Your Bible Together is aimed at people wishing to study the KYB course with others. The format is ideal for bible study groups, men’s and women’s meetings, teen classes, and even groups of friends who wish to develop their biblical knowledge collectively. There are many benefits to studying in a group, including watching or listening to lectures together, informal discussion about course content and theological topics, proofreading each other’s work, and also being an encouragement to one another. Each group will go through modules such as The World and Theology of the NT and Biblical Interpretation and Genre simultaneously, therefore, sharing the journey of studies together.
Each group must have a minimum of 5 people to activate the KYB Together discount of £150 per person for all 8 modules. Currently, the total cost of the course is £318 (After a 20% discount if all 8 modules are purchased at once). KYB Together, therefore, offers a further 50% discount when all 8 modules are purchased as part of a group of students!
Apply with your cohort today and receive this great deal on our Knowing Your Bible course!
