In a surprise announcement, the board chairman of The King’s College said the institution’s president, Tim Gibson, is resigning.

It’s not clear why Gibson has resigned. Chairman Stockwell Day reportedly wrote in an email that “we just felt the time for change . . . was now.” The college’s media spokeswoman didn’t immediately respond when The Roys Report reached out for clarification.

Day announced in the email, sent August 11, that he was immediately becoming interim president. He also wrote the change had been under discussion with Gibson and the board “over the last while.”

Gibson’s profile no longer appears on the college’s website. An archived press release shows he retired from the U.S. Air Force as a brigadier general. He was appointed the college’s seventh president in 2018.

He had been named acting president in 2017 when his predecessor, Gregory Thornbury, resigned and became chancellor amid a restructuring. Thornbury had been president since 2013, after Dinesh D’Souza resigned amid alleged infidelity in 2012.

Day, a former Canadian politician, became the college’s board chairman in October last year. He runs a consulting firm in Canada and is chief strategy officer for the International Fellowship of Christians and Jews, according to his LinkedIn profile.

The announcement was first reported by The King’s College’s student newspaper the Empire State Tribune. Day reportedly praised Gibson in a meeting with the college’s student leaders after the email announcement.

“We are familiar with the expression of somebody being a ‘sterling’ person. Tim is more than sterling, he is platinum gold,” the Empire State Tribune quoted him as saying.

The King’s College is a small Christian liberal arts institution in New York City’s Financial District. Its website states it is accredited by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education.

  1. My daughter attended the Kings College. She had a good experience. I hope all is well with the college. Here is to hoping for the best. Keep us posted ! Thanks for your reporting!

    1. It’s alumni associations and friendships that keep colleges honest. Your daughter should be able to find out more and fill you in. I hope you will ask her to maintain an interest in the well-being of her college if she had a good experience.

  2. Obviously, “forced to resign or else” is the more accurate characterization. The question is, “why”.

    “The college’s media spokeswoman didn’t immediately respond when The Roys Report reached out for clarification.”

    Totally the actions of an institution that is above-board and has nothing to hide, right?

    1. Brian – Thank-you – sussing out all the religious corruption that tries to hide under the name of Jesus – nothing new…
