“As we serve together, God has allowed us to conceive a strategic plan for diversity and intercultural leadership, and then to implement that plan. Setting priorities and short-term objectives while tracking progress towards long-term goals. It’s humbling to serve with the amazing team at Taylor University! Our Multicultural Philosophy statement helps you understand our desire and direction at Taylor University
Additionally, I’m encouraged to serve in the area of Church Relations. It is our desire to encourage the work that God is and will continue to do through the local church. With over 30 years of church ministry personally, it’s an honor to work with our Taylor community to foster, encourage, support and advance the efforts of the local church.”
- When was the first time in your life you considered your ethnicity?
- How do you see our physical and cultural differences being a catalyst for positive spiritual impact in the world?
- In Matthew 14, Jesus not only walks on water but also helps his follower, Peter, to do the same. What do you see as an equally challenging action regarding ethnic and cultural relations in America?
