Bill & Lori's Profile

Bill and Lori Gardner are on the move, from British Columbia to Toronto, Ontario!

They have taught 4 years with the Canada Institute of Linguistics (CanIL) at Trinity Western, preparing students to work cross-culturally with minority language groups in Bible translation and language development.

Starting in September 2018, they will be teaching in the linguistics department at Tyndale University College in North York, Toronto, still with CanIL.

Bill and Lori joined Wycliffe in 1983, and worked with SIL in Africa for 19 years, in Central (Congo-Brazzaville), Southern (Mozambique) and Eastern Africa (Kenya), primarily training Africans in linguistics for Bible translation into their own languages.

Bill is a Linguistics consultant for Southern Africa, seeking to develop more Linguistics specialists and consultants for that region. He is also an ordained minister.

Their two adult sons, Jonathan and Michael, who grew up in Africa, are now married, so during breaks, Bill and Lori enjoy visiting their three grandsons in California.
