No financial safety net for WJI (column: WJI Times Observer)

WJI Times Observer

Case in Point column

These summer months have been wonderfully productive because the Institute was able to train scores of aspiring journalists of faith in our May, June and July term college courses. Add to that our high school workshop in August and we had quite year. Our academic year really begins in late April with our weekend conference held at Morehouse College in Atlanta for African American journalists of faith. We moved quickly to Washington, DC area and Regent University for our May term course and then off to King’s College in Manhattan for our June term course and finally to Los Angeles at Biola University for our July term course. To put a capstone on the summer’s training, Kim coordinated our intensive high school workshop at Covenant College in Chattanooga in August. We are already promoting next year’s courses.

Nancy Pearcey lecturing

In Washington and New York we were able to webcast our worldview lectures/discussions with Nancy Pearcey, WJI’s Francis Schaeffer Scholar. Incidentally, Nancy’s new book, Total Truth (Crossway) is already a best seller and it only came out in July!

 We are enclosing our new brochure for the academic year of 2005 and a support envelope. Since we are America’s largest independent school of journalism for Christian journalists we depend upon individual donors and friends to fund the Institute. We have no denomination, churches or large foundations underwriting our programs.

 We have some exciting staff appointments and media opportunities coming up in the near future but these will have to wait until our Fall, 2004 newsletter. In the meantime, thank you for your generosity, even in the recent difficult economic environment.
