My name is Ian Clary. I’m originally from Windsor, Ontario. When I go back to visit I attend Grace Baptist Church of Essex where I interned in 2010. My church membership in Toronto is New City Baptist Church, a church that I helped plant. Currently I am a pastoral intern at Trinity Baptist Church in Burlington; this internship may lead to long-term ministry there. I am the book review editor for Hope’s Reason: A Journal of Apologetics.
As for education, I have a master of divinity from Toronto Baptist Seminary where I recently also completed a master of theology. My research for this degree was in post-Reformation history. In particular I wrote a thesis on Archbishop James Ussher, who was an Irish Puritan, and his understanding of early church christology. I am in the middle of the application process for a doctoral program at the Free University of Amsterdam, where I have proposed to write on Alexander Carson (1776-1844) as an evangelical response to the Enlightenment.
I’m married to a wonderful Welsh lass named Vicky and we live in downtown Toronto. She and I have a beautiful little boy named Jackson and a baby girl named Molly.
