Dr. Valerie Miles Tribble Attending Advancing Leadership Development Institute

July 22, 2015 ~ Carolyn Matthews

For me, Jesus’ ministry exemplified a radical gospel, not a Hallmark card–type ministry. I believe our mandate at ABSW is to train students to be prophetic and relevant as leaders who authentically are not afraid to serve the underserved and to speak truth to power.
