Deep and Abiding Commitment to Global Leadership

In the midst of a worldwide religious resurgence, Christianity is undergoing a reconfiguration of historic proportions, with Africa, Asia, and Latin America emerging as new heartlands of the faith. This astonishingly diverse Christian and religious landscape calls for spiritually mature, theologically skilled, and culturally adept leaders to guide the church in faithful ministry. I count it a privilege to have a modest role in the education and formation of such leaders at a theological seminary with a deep and abiding commitment to global leadership for the church and the world.
