Canadian Bible Society appoints Bill Dean as District Director for Prince Edward Island

TORONTO, ON — The Canadian Bible Society is pleased to announce the appointment of the Reverend Bill Dean as District Director for Prince Edward Island.

As District Director, Dean will oversee the operations of the Bible Society in PEI, headquartered in Charlottetown. He will work closely with Roman Catholic, Orthodox, Mainline Protestant and Evangelical churches in the Bible Society's mission to translate, publish, distribute and encourage the use of Scripture.

Dean joins the Canadian Bible Society with years of experience as a minister, speaker and leader in the Presbyterian Church (USA). He is a graduate of Princeton Seminary and past-president of Presbyterian Reformed Ministries International.

"I understand the work of the Bible Society as a key opportunity under the capable leadership of people here and across the country to provide Scriptures to impact lives," says Dean. "To have an opportunity to present the Word of God across denominational and cultural lines is a real gift and opportunity that the Bible Society enjoys."

Phyllis Nesbitt, National Director of the Canadian Bible Society says, "Reverend Dean is an experienced leader whose previous work building bridges between congregations and leading organizations will help expand the work of the Canadian Bible Society in PEI, but also in Canada. We're happy to have him on board."
