Friends & Alumni
No institution can thrive and continue to offer quality education without the generosity of faithful alumni and friends. Being called to ministry is an exciting venture, but one that does not come without expense. You have the opportunity to play an integral part in the equipping of servant leaders who engage the mission of Jesus Christ.
Last week, we shared how Kairos is a pioneering approach to theological education that encourages students, partners, resource providers, faculty, authors, and more to build new experiences for students, mentors and all participants. The goal is for the Kairos to be the connector between multiple points. This week we are going to explore collaborative mission.
The past few weeks, we explored what it might mean to envision Kairos as a platform on which an array of educational journeys could be constructed. Such an approach requires us to reconsider how quality, excellence, and mastery are understood. David Williams of Taylor Seminary walked us through several helpful ideas to consider in that process.
