Memorable Moments of Logos Board Retreat

吳則脩長老(Elder Tim Wu)/ 正道董事會主席 

“Even as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve.” (Matt 20:28) 

Christ, our role model, spent his ministry going from place to place to spread the good to others.  He preached the gospel, healing people, and showing compassion to all.  He displays the heart of a servant.  

I am fortunate to experience this verse while working side by side with the board members over the years, every board member brings their talent and experience as a sincere offering to the cause and serves dutifully without reservation.    

On a brisk October weekend, the board of directors gathered for our inaugural retreat at the Mater Dolorosa Retreat Center in Sierra Madre, we spent the weekend bonding with one another, aligning our vision for the seminary and enjoying God’s creation.  

We were honored to have Amy Kardash (President,  
In Trust Center) and Matt Hufman (VP of Communication, In Trust Center) as our keynote speakers for the retreat. Amy and Matt have been friends and advisors to Logos for years, and we appreciate their advice and friendship.  Amy provided research data and insights on how to navigate through a period of uncertainty across higher education.  We engaged in deep discussions from seminary enrollment trends, online education outlook, and shifts in academic focus.   

We strive not to be frozen in time, unchanging, and isolated from our community and our students. We challenge ourselves to understand the evolving higher education landscape and how to prepare our future kingdom leaders.   

Generation Z is the next generation of students. They are a group of young men and women with many unique qualities. They are the first digital natives, having been born into a world in which information is immediately accessible and social media is increasingly ubiquitous. Generation Z is also strongly interested in making a difference in the world around them, mobilizing around causes they believe in.  

This is just one of the many challenges faced by higher education today. We pray for wisdom and good judgment as the board works with the president, faculty, and staff to create the best environment for our students to succeed.  

Over the decades, God has truly blessed Logos, and the greatest of those blessings is the spirit of the Logos Family. I am thankful for the faculty, staff, and board members who make Logos a Christian institution with a collective vision and passion that allow us to achieve excellence.
