Here’s the actual text of what was said at Grad on Monday night…

The Rev. Derwyn Costinak

Reverend Costinak attends St. John’s York Mills Anglican Church.  His previous degree was from Western Pentecostal Bible College.  He came to us with a rich background in pastoral ministry within the PAOC. His extended essay was on the problem of Holy War in the Old Testament.  While at Wycliffe Derwyn was a cantor in chapel, occasional choir member, and a founding member of the preaching club.  Derwyn, Wanda and their amazing two kids entertained us well at the annual Wycliffe Christmas party and fall retreat.  Derwyn was a strong choice among faculty for doctoral study but has decided to explore options for pastoral ministry.

No stranger to the stage, Derwyn now ascends one to receive his MTS degree.  Mr. Principal, Reverend Derwyn Costinak. 

Dr. Taylor added a few sentences about Derwyn’s pastoral contributions to Wycliffe, but it was off the cuff and I can’t remember well enough to guess…
