Global Missions

Recently, I had the opportunity to travel to India with a small group from my church to serve in partnership with an indigenous Christian ministry. It was started many years ago by a first-generation convert miraculously healed of cancer after praying to Jesus, and since then through his vision and leadership has multiplied churches in many villages and touched thousands of unreached Hindus in his region with the Gospel. The ministry also runs an orphanage as well as an outreach to women through a sewing school. Just a few years ago it achieved federal recognition as an approved ministry organization.


But to be honest, I was a little intimidated about traveling half-way around the world to India, even though I have been to Africa twice in the last ten years. For some reason, I had more trepidation about this trip than others.

Leadership Studies

This past week, I had the privilege of helping to lead a group of DBU doctoral students on a study-tour of England.  These 11 students are in their final year of course work, and the Oxford Institute serves as the capstone event for the program.

Along with Dr. Adam Wright, dean of the Cook School of Leadership, Dr. Sandra Reid, director of the DBU MBA program, and Dr. Jim Denison, founder and president of the Denison Forum on Truth and Culture, we talked through issues surrounding globalization, intercultural connections, and the future of leadership in this incredible and historical setting.

The concept of “Incarnational Leadership” quickly became the leading theme throughout the trip.  This is not a new term, and it is used in many Christian circles to help indicate a unique way in which followers of Christ can model the life and ministry of Christ as they lead in their own contexts.
