It is with great sadness that we announce that Professor Emeritus, Dr. Joseph Ban, passed away on September 17, 2015 in his 90th year. He will be fondly remembered as a man of deep Christian faith with a passion for learning and teaching. He taught at MDC for 13 years (1978-1991) after serving in both the American Baptist Churches USA and Canadian Baptist Churches of Ontario and Quebec. He taught in the department of Christian Ministry at the College, publishing many books including Education for Change, Facing Today’s Demands, and Jesus Confronts Life’s Issues. He also authored numerous reviews and articles, focusing on educational reform and making the gospel accessible in light of modern issues. We would like to express our condolences to his family at this time.
