Rev Dr. Collin Cowan
Rev Dr. Collin CowanGeneral Secretary

Hello! My name is Collin Cowan, and I am the General Secretary of the Council for World Mission, a partnership of 32 churches across the world. I have held this post since January 2011. Prior to coming to this post I served as General Secretary of the United Church in Jamaica and the Cayman Islands of which I am an ordained minister, and I continue to cherish the pastoral ministry as my primary calling. As CWM General Secretary, I lead a dynamic team across 6 global regions united by our commitment to faith in God, and to the service of the body of Christ and all Creation. We work in partnership with our member churches and ecumenical partners to follow Jesus in living out the principles of ‘community’ where no one is excluded and everyone is given space to participate and contribute. Visit what we do to read about our work. I am honoured to introduce the team that makes it all happen. Click back to meet the Team.
