SWU alum named president of Bethany Bible College
Rev. Mark Gorveatte, an alumnus of Southern Wesleyan University, was recently named president of Bethany Bible College, a Canadian institution affiliated with The Wesleyan Church and located in Sussex, New Brunswick.
Gorveatte will assume the presidency at Bethany Bible College June 1. His selection came at the conclusion of a 20-month presidential search.
Gorveatte graduated from Southern Wesleyan in 1984 with a degree in psychology. He is also an alumnus of Bethany Bible College and the University of Alabama at Birmingham.
Gorveatte served for 10 years as district superintendent of the West Michigan District of The Wesleyan Church. Gorveatte and his wife Sherry have served for more than 25 years in Wesleyan leadership and pastoral appointments in several districts of The Wesleyan Church. He has also served on the boards of trustees of Bethany Bible College and of Indiana Wesleyan University.
“Rev. Gorveatte’s sense of God’s calling, his unique blend of leadership skills and experience, and his commitment to the church and to the mission of the college make him the perfect choice for the presidency at this time,” said Dr. Kerry Kind, general director of education and ministry for The Wesleyan Church.
