What has serving on the WTS Board of Directors meant to Ray?
As a member of the Board to my alma mater, it has been a privilege and a struggle to serve. Changes in theological education and the church has greatly challenged the ministry of WTS, but I am proud of the excellent leaders that continue to come out of the process.
