Every summer Cedarville Global Outreach sends teams of students, faculty, and staff around the world to share the Gospel, encourage missionaries, and provide practical help to those with physical and spiritual needs. Currently, our team in China is building relationships with Chinese students through games and sports, teaching English, and sharing about the true meaning of Easter. Please pray for this and other teams, that the Lord would open doors for them to have life-changing conversations about faith in Jesus Christ. You can follow along with the various teams through the Global Outreach blog.
At its May meeting, the Cedarville Board of Trustees approved the development of a Physician Assistant graduate program, including hiring the inaugural program director and initiating the accreditation pathway. Pending the required external approvals, we plan to enroll the first cohort of PA students by May 2022. PAs are in high demand nationally, as U.S. healthcare providers seek to fill the gap in primary care. Cedarville alumnus Jason Grahame ‘99 has been tapped to lead Cedarville’s new PA program.
Beloved preacher, author, and teacher Dr. Warren Wiersbe passed away on May 2. Dr. Wiersbe and his wife, Betty, have been long-time friends of Cedarville. Warren often preached in chapel, especially in the 1960s, when he served at Calvary Baptist Church in Covington, Kentucky. His commitment to Cedarville was most recently felt in the gifting of his vast personal library to the University. This gift will allow Cedarville to steward a portion of the tremendous legacy of a man whose main goal in life was pointing people to Jesus.
