If you’ve interacted with those of us at Wilberforce Academy at all you’ve probably bumped into this idea of a five-part model for social change. But what exactly is that model? Where does it come from?
Whittaker Chambers was a deeply-embedded spy with the American Communist Party during the 1930s. After converting to Christianity, he left the Party, and, when he did, he wrote: “I know that I am leaving the winning side for the losing side, but it is better to die on the losing side than to live under Communism." So, what ought an evangelical to do when, by all appearances, we are on "the losing side" (at least in 2016)?
Our good friends at William Carey International University, founded by the late Dr. Ralph Winter, recently carried an article about the work of Wilberforce Academy on their website. One of our earliest and oldest mentees, Kisongo Mbeleulu of Congo, is highlighted, in particular because he has recently graduated with his Masters degree from WCIU.
Longtime friend Dr. Christian Overman hosts and writes for the Worldview Matters blogsite. He always has fascinating short video clips and articles that, together, make the compelling case that how we see reality has far more consequences than we ever imagined.
Recently, he invited the Academy's founder Dr Bob Osburn to write about the work and ministry of Wilberforce Academy. Read "Poor Atlas" to learn more about how we can leverage the future of the nations through international students dedicated to Jesus Christ and trained to apply a Christian worldview to social challenges.
