Columbia Union Extends Director Call to Philadelphia Pastor
Story by Taashi Rowe
Last week the Columbia Union Conference Executive Committee extended a call to Tara VinCross, DMin, to head and launch their school of evangelism. VinCross is senior pastor of Pennsylvania Conference’s Chestnut Hill church in Philadelphia; director of the Pennsylvania Youth Challenge, a youth summer literature evangelism program; and senior pastor for the REACH Philadelphia church plant. VinCross, who will graduate with a Doctor of Ministry in biblical spirituality and discipleship from Andrews University (Mich.) in August, is praying—along with the members of her churches and other community partners in Philadelphia—for God’s leading.
The Columbia Union School of Evangelism is geared toward teaching young adults how to become active disciples of Christ. Union leaders are planning to open the school in September 2015.
