CCC mourns the loss of UTC president

FROM THE OFFICE OF: Associate General Secretary (Ecumenical Relations & Theological Affairs)

Rev. Trevor Edwards
Acting President
United Theological College of the West Indies
Golding Avenue
P.O. Box 136
Kingston 7
JAMAICA.

Dear. Rev. Edwards:

On behalf of the Preasidium, the General Secretary, Mr. Gerard Granado and the staff of the Caribbean Conference of Churches (CCC), I extend our condolences to the staff and students of the United Theological College of the West Indies.

We mourn with you the loss of you President, Rev. Dr. Lewin Williams. Indeed, he was one of the outstanding theologians of the Caribbean. I am sure that you will remember him as one of your dedicated Presidents and a committed lecturer.

The Caribbean church and the Caribbean as a whole will miss him. The CCC will also remember him for the contribution he made to the work of the organisation.

May his soul rest in peace.

Yours in Christ

Rev. Dr. Knolly Clarke
Associate General Secretary
(Ecumenical Relations & Theological Affairs)

Rev. Lewin Williams was a mission worker in Jamaica for the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.).  He was the President of the United Theological College of the West Indies (UTC).

The UTC is an ecumenical seminary in Jamaica. It serves as the primary institution for theological education for Protestants in the Caribbean.

It was founded in 1970 to foster church cooperation, and plays a significant role in raising consciousness regarding ministry in the Caribbean context.

Rev. Williams died Tuesday, September 19, of lung cancer at a New Jersey hospital. He was 70.
