This is a token of gratitude from our new dean, Timothy Thang:

"I am grateful for the privilege to serve in the position of Academic Dean of the esteemed Foundation Academy of Amsterdam. I am filled with joyous excitement to work together with the School of Theology in making Christian education accessible to all. The multicultural-denominational backgrounds of the faculty, staff, and student body are what the united body of Christ needs in order to reach the world. The vastness of the mission requires a more accommodative method so that Christians can have a more effective influence in the world as peacemakers, as salt and light in our fragile world. Being located in the city of Amsterdam, Foundation Academy is the most suitable place to materialize this vision and mission. I am, therefore, most grateful to be a part of this renowned institution. May God strengthen us to carry out the great task for His glory."


Timothy Thang

Academic Dean of the School of Theology.
