Rev. Jackie Stoneman Announces her Retirement
“Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labour in the Lord is not in vain.”—1 Corinthians 15:58
After 25 years on the faculty at MAC, including 12 years as Principal, Rev. Jackie Stoneman will retire at the end of 2019. Anglican Deaconess Ministries is grateful for Jackie’s faithful “labour in the Lord” and invites you to hear from her directly in the video below.
Paul’s encouragement in 1 Corinthians 15:58 has always had a deep meaning for Rev. Stoneman. From the time she began her ministry, throughout her varied roles at MAC and now as she heads into retirement, she believes God’s call to “stand firm” and continue “fully in the work of the Lord” will continue to guide her in this next season.
Her faithful example is one which we at Mary Andrew College and Anglican Deaconess Ministries will always value, especially as we celebrate the great work she’s helped establish at MAC in equipping women to serve Christ throughout the world.
Soon, the role of Principal will be advertised to enable a smooth transition for the College and students. Please pray with us that God will send us just the right person to continue building on Rev. Stoneman’s vision and work at Mary Andrews College as Christian women receive theological training to care for a world in need of Jesus. And please rejoice with us at God’s abundant provision of grace in and through Rev. Stoneman’s impact.
