Partnership Talks: UPDATE
The Taylor Board of Trustees has voted to pursue a longterm partnership agreement with two potential partners: Vanguard College (Edmonton, AB) and ACTS (a consortium of seminaries based at Trinity Western University in Langley, BC).
Board of Trustees Meet, Strategic Partnerships to be Considered
The Board of Trustees of Taylor College and Seminary hold their regularly-scheduled semi-annual meetings this weekend. The major item on the agenda is a long-term strategic partner, one that will contribute to the long term financial stability of the institution.
The Wahl Centre at Taylor is pleased to be playing a role in initiating a local conversation about justice. On November 15-16, those interested in God's mission of justice will gather at First Baptist Church in downtown Edmonton for #JusticeYEG.
This event grew out of an advisory group of local pastors and church leaders who met in at Taylor in 2011 to consider some of the key needs of the church, and how the Wahl Centre could help address those needs. At the same time, local church Urban Bridge was conceiving a similar event and this event became a cooperative venture. (The Edmonton Do Likewise Society has also become an event partner.)
Dr. Williams contributes to The Story
Taylor President Dr. David Williams will be sharing his reflections on the Gospels for an online publication of Scripture Union. "The Story" is a devotional with many contributors from across Canada, including Grace Fox, Carolyn Arends, Mark Buchanan, Leonard Buhler, Janet Epp Buckingham, Gary Nelson, Jim Cantelon -- and now David Williams. The Story is designed "(to emphasize) the biblical narrative and connecting our stories with God's Story."
David's reflections will be sent to subscribers from September 19 - 30, 2013 (and are archived on the site for future readers). You can subscribe for free by visiting thestory.scriptureunion.ca.
