HIU in the Christian Standard

The Christian Standard is the principal magazine connecting the congregations of the Christian Churches / Churches of Christ. The November 2016 issue has three articles about or by members of the Hope International University community.

First, a three part article, "Studying the City" by Jennifer Johnson focuses on three of our colleges that are involved in studying their local urban communities; Ozark Christian College (Joplin, Missouri), Johnson University (Knoxville, Tennessee), and Hope International University's City Semester program.

Second, "The Church Needs the Hood" by Justin Horey is about the work of local Fullerton ministry program,Solidarity, and its founder and executive director, HIU alum, Tommy Nixon.

Finally, our own professor of Intercultural Studies, Dr. Kip Lines, has written a thought provoking yet practical article on "Missional Justice" where he asks difficult questions such as, "What does it mean for the church to demonstrate God’s justice in the world?"

The Christian Standard is available in print in the Darling Library.
