Contextual education at the Institute of Lutheran Theology includes internships, practicums, and practical education that ministry candidates must go through as a part of their education at ILT. ILT is committed to helping its students prepare not only academically, but also practically for life in congregational ministry. As a part of the commitment ILT has added Dr. Eddie Kwok to the faculty as the Director of Contextual Education. Dr. Kwok comes with many years of experience and will lead ILT efforts to expand its training of ministry candidates.
Dr. Kwok is a pastor emeritus with the Canadian Association of Lutheran Congregations and currently serving as Interim Pastor at New Life Chinese Lutheran Church. He received his M.Div. from Regent College in Vancouver and his Ph.D. from the London School of Theology in UK. He taught at the Lutheran Theological Seminary in Saskatoon from 1999 to 2010 during which he also served as Dean, Faculty Secretary and Director of Contextual Education.
Eddie was born and raised in Singapore. He moved to Canada in 1984 and is married to Janet. They have two grown-up children, Stephanie and Justin, who are still living with them. When he is not busy teaching or preaching, Eddie likes to tinker around in his workshop, fixing things that are broken.
