Patrick Mitchel has just begun work this week as Principal of Belfast Bible College. Prior to this he was Director of Studies and lecturer in theology at the Irish Bible Institute in Dublin. He is married to Ines. They have been in Christian ministry in the Republic of Ireland for the last 25 years and have been involved in the development of Maynooth Community Church. Patrick blogs at www.faithinireland.wordpress.com and welcomes people to join in the conversations there. Some forms of ‘screen-free time’ that he enjoys include some jogging, playing golf, hiking and dinner with friends.
