ACC chair Tengatenga to become dean of US foundation

Bishop James Tengatenga of Southern Malawi, chair of the Anglican Consultative Council is stepping down from his episcopacy to become dean of a foundation at Dartmouth College in New Hampshire. The chair of the ACC is also chair of the Standing Committee of the Anglican Communion, and according to a news release from the Communion office, Tengatenga will be able to finish his term, which ends in 2016.

The release begins:

The Rt Revd James Tengatenga is to leave his role as Bishop of Southern Malawi after accepting a position as Dean of the Tucker Foundation at Dartmouth College, in New Hampshire, USA.

Bishop Tengatenga this week wrote to his fellow bishops of the Anglican Church of Central Africa (CPCA) informing of his decision. He said he wrote with “mixed feelings” about tendering his resignation to his primate, Archbishop Albert Chama.

“It is my belief that it is time to move on and let others lead the church to new levels,” he wrote, “and that this new calling is another opportunity to serve the Lord in the moulding of a moral world-leadership.

Off the top of my head, could this bishop from Southern Malawi, translated to Dartmouth, become an interpreter, to the Anglican “Global South”, of a certain retired Bishop of New Hampshire? [Lord, hear my prayer.]
