Janice Anderson

Associate Professor, Coordinator of Intercultural Studies

Professor Anderson's global vision is communicated with warmth and vitality.  It is fitting that her 14 years of missionary service with the Christian and Missionary Alliance were in the Philippines, "where Asia wears a smile."  From 1987-2001 she worked in church planting, and then administration and teaching at a Bible College that she and her colleagues set up in Cebu City.  She has continuing interests in Cebuano culture, issues of cross-cultural adaptation, and enjoys being a mentor to students.  She also credits her time in the Philippines for making her an avid basketball fan and a competitive Scrabble player.

President

Dr. Mark Boughan is the 8th President of Emmanuel Bible College and has an extensive background in ministry and higher education.  For the past 17 years, he has served at Bible colleges in both eastern and western Canada in positions as Academic Dean, V.P. of Enrollment, and Dean of Student Life.  Prior to that were pastorates in Ontario and Nova Scotia , and also providing leadership to other para-church organizations such as Youth for Christ, inner-city missions, and social work.

Self described as "a practitioner with an academic bent", his passion is to see how learning and study play out in real life and to communicate in ways relevant to whatever audience he meets. His research and teaching interests are as wide-ranging as his background and so, while he has recently been advising churches and pastors on change and conflict, he also has a background in theology, education, counselling and ethics.
