About Rev. Dr. Callam
Neville George Callam, General Secretary and Chief Executive Officer of the Baptist World Alliance, was born in Jamaica. His training for the Christian ministry took him to the ecumenical United Theological College of the West Indies, the University of the West Indies, and Harvard Divinity School. His wide range of interests and his commitment to community development have led him to serve in many capacities in both church and society. He has served as theological educator and media manager, pastor and church administrator.
Ordained to the Christian ministry by the Jamaica Baptist Union (JBU) in 1977, his association with the Baptist World Alliance (BWA) began in 1985. He participated in the BWA as a member of the Executive Committee and General Council and served a five-year term as a vice president. Dr. Callam has been conferred with honorary doctorates by Dallas Baptist University in Texas and Judson University in Illinois, USA, and by the Caribbean Graduate School of Theology in Jamaica.
Author or editor of seven books, the most recent being Pursuing Unity and Defending Rights: The Baptist World Alliance at Work (2010), Dr. Callam has made presentations at forums, symposia, seminars, workshops and services of worship in more than 70 countries.
Married to Dulcie Allison for more than thirty years, the Callams are the proud parents of two adult children and happy grandparents of two girls.
