Rev'd Michael Ovey, PhD, MTh, MA, BCL, BA
Mike Ovey served as the greatly loved and widely respected Principal of Oak Hill College until his sudden and unexpected death on 7 January 2017. Please see Oak Hill's tribute to Mike, plus our report on the thanksgiving service for Mike at All Soul's Langham Place. We have left his faculty profile unchanged below.
Mike believes that the more we know the truth about God, his grace and greatness, the more we love and trust him. His vision is for students at Oak Hill to grow in knowledge and loving trust in this God.
Before coming to Oak Hill, Mike was a civil service lawyer drafting government legislation. He trained at Ridley Hall, Cambridge, and worked as a curate for four years at All Saints, Crowborough, before teaching for three years at Moore Theological College, Sydney. He joined Oak Hill in 1998 and since then has finished a PhD in the field of Trinitarian theology.
He is married to Heather, and they have three children. He remains incurably optimistic about the prospects of Arsenal FC and the England rugby team, solace being provided by the works of PG Wodehouse. Most recent writing includes co-authoring the book, Pierced for our Transgressions (IVP).
