I chose St. Andrew's because of the emphasis on the integration of our theological studies with practical ministry experience and community involvement.
St. Andrew's blessed my life with social struggles and deep faith.
St. Andrew's prepared me
for a lifetime of ministry
and congregational service.
I grew in confidence over time, due in large part to the support of teachers, family and friends and the tenacious presence of the Spirit.
I am grateful for what I have experienced and learned from
St. Andrew’s College including
a strong sense of community.
Education/ Degrees: B. A. (Economics), 1973, University of Saskatchewan

Biography: A graduate of St. Andrew’s College, Lorne was ordained by The United Church of Canada and served the Saskatchewan pastoral charges of Gravelbourg and Zion United, Moose Jaw before entering public life as a member of the Saskatchewan legislature. First elected in 1986, Lorne served in the legislature until 2009 as MLA, Leader of the Opposition, Minister of Health, Minister of Social Services and Premier of Saskatchewan.

Working with the St. Andrew’s community, Lorne seeks to ensure that a strong Prairie college will continue to offer the opportunity for women and men to become deeply rooted in biblical and theological study within the context of our time, to equip them for servant leadership in our church and society.
