Professor Jenny Collins

She directed Taylor’s Lighthouse International Service-Learning Program from 1999-2013 through which she coordinated 88 three-week trips to 24 countries. She is the board secretary for The Standards of Excellence in Short-Term Mission (soe.org), an organization she helped found in 2003, and has chaired two church mission leadership teams. She earned her BS at Taylor University and her MAR from Trinity Evangelical Divinity School; she is currently a PhD student in missiology at Concordia Theological Seminary, Ft. Wayne, IN. Jenny also serves as a Billy Graham Center Fellow at the Billy Graham Center for Evangelism at Wheaton College. The Fellows are tasked with fusing the academic world with the practical application of evangelism research and best practices.
1. How is Jesus speaking to me about the integration of evangelism and justice?
2. In what ways do I compare the best of my group with the worst of another?
3. How can I get outside the Taylor “insider” bubble and serve with and among those facing barriers and oppression?
