On behalf of Hudson Taylor faculty and staff, I want to extend my warmest welcome to all students, parents, and friends of the school.
Hudson Taylor University is a young institution and still growing. However, our vision is clear. We strive to provide the highest quality theological education to our students. Our goal is to equip this generation of ministers and missionaries to become Christlike servants who are committed to furthering God’s kingdom on earth.
Our school derives its namesake from the missionary, James Hudson Taylor, who spent the better part of his ministry in China. What set Taylor apart from other missionaries of his time was not simply his zeal for evangelism, but also his sensitivity to the surrounding culture. He adopted their ways of life and embraced the people as his own. In doing so, Taylor reflected the incarnation of Christ to the world, who “did not consider equality with God something to be grasped . . . but made himself nothing by taking the very nature of a servant.” (Phil 2:6-7)
It is this spirit of humility and service that we strive to model as an institution and to instill in our students. We want our students to become servant-leaders, who are Christ’s hands and feet to their various communities and cultural contexts so that, like the Apostle Paul, we can “become all things to all people that some might be saved.” (1 Cor 9:19)
I look forward to serving alongside each of you in this call.
Blessings in Christ
