The President’s Cabinet believes in the importance of community.
How do you define family? A word that speaks volumes is community. Oxford dictionary defines community as a group of people living in the same place or having a particular characteristic in common.
The President’s Cabinet can own that concept! We have traveled together, prayed together, collaborated together, considered the future, and reflected on the past together. We invest time, energy, and our hearts together in formal and informal settings. We reflect a cross-section of the Taylor community and, along with President Lindsay, provide guidance and direction to Taylor University. Like any family, our connection is not limited to one meeting location. We gather in the President’s Office, the President’s home, The Dining Commons, and frequently in other spots on campus. We enjoy worshipping the Lord together, and occasionally the schedule allows us to enjoy a meal together. Early morning phone calls and late-day texting help us stay current will all the happenings. Being family, you understand this sometimes means road trips! It’s been a joy to log road warrior and frequent-flyer miles together. Chicago, Michigan, Indianapolis, Fort Wayne, Memphis, Nashville, Orlando, and Marion are some places that immediately come to mind. Your thoughts, opinions, and concerns can be heard in a family. I appreciate that family members hear the in-between, unfiltered, poorly worded ideas that can ooze out of one’s soul. I’m so grateful for my cabinet family and how they help me to serve the Lord and to be a better servant-leader.
