MBTS to host seminar with missionary author
KANSAS CITY—Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary (MBTS) will host a “A Missions Morning with Don Richardson” Nov. 26 from 9 a.m. to noon.
Richardson will address the students of several seminary and college classes on such topics as the animistic world view, the Islamic worldview and redemptive analogies. He will also be signing books before speaking in chapel.
“We are thrilled that Dr. Richardson is taking this time to come and share with our students while he is in the area,” said MBTS President R. Philip Roberts. “It is a real privilege for us here at MBTS to be able to provide our students with opportunities to interact with those who have been and continue to serve the Lord so faithfully.”
Richardson and his late wife Carol Joy (Soderstrom) are former World Team (formerly Regions Beyond Missionary Union) missionaries to Irian Jaya (formerly Dutch New Guinea) where they served for 15 years among the Sawi, a Stone Age tribe of cannibal-headhunters who valued treachery as an ideal. Since 1977, Richardson has served as minister-at-large for World Team. He is an ordained pastor. He speaks at more than 40 missions conferences a year and has spoken in all 50 states and 35 countries.
