"I cannot imagine my ministry without McCormick’s travel seminar in Egypt. Not only have biblical texts come alive, but also my sense of God’s work in the larger world. Since then, I have visited the Middle East several times to support the wonderful ministries there and I’ve been able to share what I’ve learned with several congregations in the United States."

“At McCormick I became deeply engaged in ministry with persons outside the traditional congregational life, such as refugee families, inner city schools, and the homebound elderly. These experiences opened many new possibilities in my understanding of self, God, and other.”
