Dr. James Christie, Executive Director
Jim received his Ph.D. in Classics from the University of Toronto, with a specialization in first century AD literature and history. Much of his life’s work has been devoted to the Greek texts that eventually found their way into the New Testament collection. He served as a pastor in Ontario for over 30 years, and in the past 15 years he taught as an adjunct instructor at Tyndale Seminary in Toronto.
For about the past 10 years Jim found himself particularly captivated by the mysteries of the Apocalypse. After long and careful study, he concluded that the document not only functions as a cohesive, understandable whole, but that its message is important if not urgent for today. He has therefore published the results of his study in a book, The Gold Mine, released in 2015; and now plans to create an audio/video background to the text of the Apocalypse which will serve to provide an interpretive reading for anyone willing to listen: The Patmos Project.
Jim is a lover of nature and spends much of his free time in the outdoors. Normally, he lives in Pickering, Ontario, where he leads a simple, quiet life. Recently, however, he has also been spending time in Mexico in an attempt to learn Spanish and prepare for ministry outside of Canada. As of March 1, 2018, he will be returning to Mexico for another as yet undetermined length of time.
