In keeping with our commitment to “…prepare Christians to live and serve in the church and in the world according to a Biblical worldview…” Calvary University has hired Joshua Paxton as full-time Assistant Professor of Intercultural Studies. Josh has been working part-time for Calvary for the past three years and prior to that served with Avant Ministries in multiple capacities. Josh still serves with Avant as a mobilizer and his most recent ministry involvement has been networking with ministries to immigrants and refugees in the Kansas City area.

Josh brings a passion for cross-cultural understanding and missions to Calvary’s faculty. This summer he led 4 students on a two and half week trip to Greece (more on that to follow soon).

Calvary University is uniquely situated to prepare students for global engagement. We are surrounded in Kansas City by 63+ ethnic groups and 4 major mission agencies. Calvary has a long tradition of preparing Christians to share the message of the gospel with the lost cultures of the world and we are excited about how our Intercultural Studies Program will grow with Josh on board in his new capacity.
