Rev. Dr. Malcolm Card
Malcolm Card began his post-secondary studies in Moncton, where he studied at the United Baptist Bible Training School on Salisbury Road for a pivotal year when critical relationships were formed, self-examination and personal growth were experienced.
After obtaining his Bachelor of Arts degree in 1965 from Gordon College in Massachusetts and his Master of Divinity degree from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary in 1969, Malcolm Card accepted a call to ministry as Senior Pastor in Perth Andover, NB. During his first pastorate, he and Patty welcomed their first daughter, Cheryl and within two years while in the midst of a ten year term as missionaries with Canadian Baptist Ministries in Indonesia, their second daughter, Sarah was born and later their son, Robert.
During home assignment in 1982, Malcolm accepted the position as Canadian Baptist Ministries’ Representative for Ontario and Quebec until 1986 when he became Executive Staff in the CBM Toronto office. Characteristic of Malcolm’s tenacity he also achieved his Doctor of Ministry in 1985 from Eastern Baptist Theological Seminary in Pennsylvania.
By 1998, Malcolm sensed God’s call back to the local church where he served at Woodstock Baptist Church as Senior Pastor until 2004 while also offering leadership as President of the Convention of Atlantic Baptist Churches between 2002 and 2003.
Later in 2004, Canadian Baptist Ministries once again sought Malcolm’s global experience and missional heart and he served as CBM Team Leader for Africa while adjunct professor at Carey Hall, Vancouver, British Columbia until 2010 when he became Interim General Secretary for Canadian Baptist Ministries.
