“People will come from East and West, North and South, and will take their place in the reign of God.” Luke 13:29
Dear Friends of Central, as we enter this joyous season of Advent and then Christmastide, we give thanks that Jesus draws the whole world together. God has called Central to be a place where north and south, east and west, come together as the one Body of Christ to learn how the Gospel takes root in different cultures.
Recently while Doctor of Ministry students were on campus—from Myanmar, from Korea, and from the US—we celebrated an “Evening of Global Learning.” You can imagine the sounds of different languages, savory smells of ethnic foods, and Scripture read in the heart language of these different cultures. It was a joyful gathering, and we celebrated Central’s unique role in global Christianity.
Central exists to prepare leaders to serve around the world. God continues to bless our work as Central creates a hospitable space for these God is calling. We could not do this without you!
“I ask you to give generously as the year-end draws near. Each day I give thanks for your participation in the world-wide mission of Central.” — Molly T. Marshall
