Rev. George Eves is a retired Anglican Priest. Raised in the Pentecostal tradition and originally following a brief career in Life Insurance Administration, George felt the call to ministry and enrolled at Wycliffe College at the University of Toronto. There, he obtained the degrees of Master of Religion (MRel) and Master of Theology (ThM). After graduation, he and his wife, Deborah, moved to Winnipeg, MB where he was ordained deacon on January 6, 1980, and priest on November 1, 1980
After enjoying several years serving at a small country parish, George, Deborah and their two daughters moved to Saint John, NB where, again, the Lord was calling him to serve. George became the rector of St. John’s (Stone) Church where he and his family would remain for thirteen years.
During much of this period Rev. Eves served as the founding Chairman of the Board for “Barnabas Anglican Ministries”, an organization which sought to encourage biblical ministry in the Anglican Church of Canada. He worked closely with BAM’s National Co-Ordinator, the Rev. Tom Robinson and, under Tom’s overall guidance, was part of the team that organized the Essentials 94 conference in Montreal.
Rev. Eves left Stone Church to teach at Taylor College of Evangelism in 2000. He remained there until 2011. While there he also took on the role as Priest-in- Charge at St. Luke’s, Gondola Point, Anglican Church, where he served until his retirement in 2015.
George has written two books, Two Religions, One Church and In the Bosom of Abraham. He also writes a weekly blog entitled Lection Connection in which he provides key themes and thoughts regarding each reading from the lectionary, specifically aimed at lay people.
George and his wife Deborah have recently left the Anglican Church of Canada for reasons explained here.
George and Deborah now live in Quispamsis, NB where they are enjoying their retirement by taking day trips around their beautiful province and going on road trips to visit their two daughters, two sons-in-law and especially their five grandchildren.
