Darryl Wolanski [MTS 2013] had no idea what would be on the other side when God called him to pursue a Master of Theological Studies [MTS] degree after being in the private sector for over 20 years.
He knew there was something very attractive about Tyndale. “What really attracted me to Tyndale was the style of teaching and the quality of the academics,” says Darryl.
His professors had a huge impact on him. “The two years I spent at Tyndale were the richest years I’ve experienced since completing my Master of Business Administration in 1989,” he says. “The professors were highly proficient in their academic field, they worked hard to get to know the students, and they encouraged interaction in class. It was really good. I loved every class.”
At Tyndale, Darryl gained insight about the human journey. “There’s a quote by Stephen R. Covey I read in a textbook that says, ‘We are not human beings on a spiritual journey. We are spiritual beings on a human journey.’ That really resonated with me,” he says.
It’s not surprising that after graduating from Tyndale Seminary, Darryl was led back into the private sector. He is now the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) Leader at People and Change, a human capital consulting arm of PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC). Human capital consulting looks at the “people side” of corporate change management. Many of the companies Darryl works with are large blue chip companies operating in the GTA and across Canada.
“As believers, how do we demonstrate what it means to be human to the rest of the world?” asks Darryl. “I really feel that Tyndale prepared me to live out the answer.”
