TSSA Fundraiser Goes Big
The Taylor Seminary Students Association surpassed their fundraising goal in a campaign to help students from our sister seminary in Cameroon.
The student body set an ambitious fundraising goal of $2,000 to purchase textbooks for students from Cameroon who will be studying with our own Dr. Allan Effa in 2018. The textbooks, written by African theologians, will be purchased and shipped to students ahead of their planned course early in the new year.

onWORD Conference adds Art Exhibit
The 8th annual onWORD Conference has added a new element for 2017: an art exhibit. Artists are contributing works that are related to our theme as a way for us to reflect and engage with our theme. These works of art will be available for sale through a silent auction.
Another highlight of the conference will be a first-century feast, complete with specially-sourced ancient ingredients. This is a fun opportunity for those who want to really understand and experience the culture and setting of this story.
