Dr. Bryant Myers at Fuller Theological Seminary...

Dr. Einstein is the icon in Physics. Michael Jordan is the star in basketball. Babe Ruth is the legend in baseball. ...

Who would be the guru for the international development industry?

It is Dr. Bryant Myers.

He was a VP at World Vision for several years. Now he is professor of international development at Fuller Theological Seminary. He is a practitioner as well as an academia. His book, "Walking with the Poor" is the bible for anyone who is pursuing a degree or a career in international development.

He emphasizes holistic ministry.

A quote:

"The NATURE of poverty is fundamentally RELATIONAL and the CAUSE of poverty is fundamentally SPIRITUAL."

It is a profound statement.

Why am I talking about this?

Today I met him in person. It was such a wonderful opportunity to listen to him. His advice was golden. Thank you, Lord, for the opportunity to meet Dr. Myers! - Jeffrey
