The Bridge, Spring 2011
The Spring 2011 edition of Taylor's semi-annual magazine has been printed and mailed, and is also posted online (click here to view as a PDF).
This edition of The Bridge features Wahl Centre employee Heather Breitkreuz, who is providing some much-needed (and excellent)oversight to training events. Read more about Heather, and read her article on some of the upcoming learning opportunities at the Wahl Centre.
Other articles deal with the move to campus of the White Cross ministry, which has been a very important part of medical missions in Africa since World War 1. This humanitarian agency will be housed in Benke Hall, and will include many opportunities to volunteer.
Another story outlines a new library partnership with Vanguard College, and our 'Alumni Profile' features Mark Wollenberg ('80), who is a key figure in International Justice Mission in western Canada, a group that is powerfully and dramatically changing lives around the world.
Please drop us a line to respond to anything you read; artists should know how very much we would appreciate a sample of your work to include on the back cover of an upcoming issue (we get fewer submissions than you'd think!).We also really hope that you will take a few minutes to use the reply card inside The Bridge to support your school. If only you knew how much your gift means! And if you have never made a contribution, please consider taking time now to begin giving back. Many of our donors have faithfully supported Taylor for decades and a new generation is needed to step in and 'pay it forward', ensuring a strong foundation for theological education that will serve the church many years into the future.
White Cross at Taylor
The White Cross has a new home in Canada! Headquartered on the campus of Taylor College and Seminary and under the direction of the E P Wahl Centre, White Cross continues to provide compassionate care ministry to the NAB hospitals in Cameroon and Nigeria. For decades White Cross has provided rolled bandages, baby layettes and other hospital and medical supplies to assist in the medical mission work being done. It is truly a life-saving humanitarian service and a vitally important supplier to these African missions.
This transition is part of a wider re-organization at the NAB. The denominational headquarters have moved from Chicago to northern California, and the NAB is focusing on fewer areas of ministry. At the same time, Taylor has been embracing new opportunities for training and serving, and the White Cross ministry is a good fit with the E P Wahl Centre.
Volunteers at Taylor are working with staff and administration in establishing the new Canadian operation, and within a few months the first container bound for Cameroon will leave Edmonton, filled with life-saving supplies.
The NAB’s White Cross ministries in the United States have been handed off to a church in Texas. The Quest Church in Royse City, which has warehouse space and other resources ideal for handling White Cross shipments, will work cooperatively with (but independently of) Taylor.
As a part of this transition, Taylor is currently undergoing renovations in Benke to house the White Cross Ministry. Once complete, we will have access to a spacious location for our staff and volunteers to work in as they receive and process these important shipments.
If you want more information about how you can contribute to this valued ministry, check out the White Cross page on the NAB website.

White Cross continues to be a valued ministry of our NAB churches serving our missions overseas. The changes being experienced right now will make this ministry even more effective.
Personnel Changes at Taylor
Personnel changes are taking place at Taylor with the coinciding departures of three senior staff members.
Vice-President Dr. Terry Fossen, who has been serving here for over three years, has been significantly involved in the launch of the Wahl Centre, in our church and alumni relations, and as part of the administrative team. Terry has accepted a position as interim pastor at Greenfield Baptist Church; he anticipates staying closely involved with Taylor in various ways, including through the Taylor Alumni Association.
Director of Enrolment Services and Registrar Craig Weston has accepted a position at another post-secondary institution. Craig will continue to be involved at Taylor behind the scenes, sharing his knowledge and expertise with those who will take over his responsibilities.
Wayne Wicks, our Director of Library Services, is leaving as the result of an agreement to share library services with Vanguard College.
Taylor also wishes a warm farewell to adjunct professor Dr. Stefano Piva, who is heading to the lower mainland to accept a pastorate.
