One of our most strategic goals is to establish a board of reference of respected individuals in the Christian community who knew Ralph Winter and his heart for the unreached peoples of the world as well as those who have an understanding of his last major initiative, that of founding the Roberta Winter Institute.
I'm very happy to announce three new additions to our board of reference.
Harold Fickett is a world-renowned author of novels, biographies, and works of spirituality, including The Holy Fool, The Living Christ, and Dancing with the Divine, and a forthcoming biography of Ralph D. Winter. He was a co-founder of the journal Image, was President and Editor-in-Chief of The Catholic Exchange and collaborated with Charles Colson on several books, including the contemporary classics Loving God and How Now Shall We Live? Harold has also contributed to such publications as Books & Culture and Christianity Today.
Dr. Yong Joong Cho is the co-president of East West Center for Mission Research and Development and International Director of the Global Network of Mission Structures (GNMS). Dr. Cho has quite a remarkable background as a field missionary, an international director of a global mission agency (Global Partners), general secretary of the World Korean Missionary Fellowship and now director of the GNMS. Dr. Cho holds a Ph.D. in Intercultural Studies from Trinity Evangelical Divinity School.
Greg Waybright is the Senior Pastor at Lake Avenue Church in Pasadena, CA. Prior to pastoring at Lake Avenue, Dr. Waybright served as President of Trinity International University in Deerfield, IL. Prior to that he spent 20 years as a pastor in California, Illinois and Wisconsin. Dr. Waybright holds a Ph.D. in New Testament theology from Marquette University, a master of divinity from Trinity Evangelical Divinity School, a master of arts in communication from Wheaton Graduate School, a bachelor of arts in biblical studies and philosophy fromWheaton College, and a diploma in pastoral studies from Moody Bible Institute.

Rejoice with me over the willingness of these accomplished and Godly men to lend the credibility of their good names to our cause.
