Many remember Dr. J.I. Packer for his remarkable contributions to evangelical theology. To his friends, colleagues, and students, Jim’s influence reached beyond the purely intellectual. His love for Christ, his delight in teaching, and his commitment to the church had a profound influence in the academy, the church, and the world.
You are cordially invited to join the Regent College community for a special online gathering honouring and remembering Jim Packer: author, professor, colleague, churchman, and friend.
On Wednesday, November 18, 2020 at 12–1:30 pm PST, special guests including Alister McGrath, N.T. Wright, and David Neff will pay tribute to Jim’s life, faith, and ministry as the choir of St. John’s Vancouver offers up some of his most-loved hymns.
I hope you will join us as we pay tribute to this dear friend who showed us how to live in the love and knowledge of God.
Jeffrey P. Greenman
President, Regent College
