Devotions from the President

“Ask the Lord of the harvest to send laborers...”   Matthew 9:38                                                                                               

The gospels of Matthew and Luke both record Jesus telling his disciples to “ask the Lord of the harvest to send laborers into His harvest.” Each gospel writer also adds something unique to our understanding of Jesus’ words.

“God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.”  James 4:6 & 1 Peter 5:5.

Last month I shared in a pre-commencement seminar and again in the Commencement address our understanding of what God is calling our university to do in the years ahead. Our calling is to reach as many students as we can in as many places of the world as we can, and to provide for them good theological and church leader training in their own languages. And to do this at a cost our students can afford.
