I believe my wife Jill has a Spiritual Gift of Teaching. She has used that gift throughout her life to build up the body of Christ, teaching and mentoring young and old alike. Jill teaches children at Garnett and also teaches college age and high school age math courses at two Tulsa area schools. The picture to the left was taken in the 1990s when we were in Uganda. She is standing with Kate Katono Muwanguzi. Jill and Kate are holding each other’s children and loved one another’s families very much and cared for each other and mentored each other for seven years when we lived there. We are returning to Uganda to visit our friends like Kate and many others in village churches and the church in Jinja, Uganda in May-June 2010.
My wife, Jill, and I have three children: Ashley, Anna, and Jacob. We live in Broken Arrow and I preach for The Journey: a New Generation Church of Christ in Tulsa (www.thejourneychurch.faith). I have a B.A. in Journalism and an M.Div. from Harding School of Theology in Memphis, Tennessee. Before coming to Tulsa, we lived in Nashville, Tennessee four years, where I worked with The Zoe Group and Wineskins Magazine. From 1994-2001 we lived in Jinja, Uganda, where we worked with a church planting team, an experience that forever changed our lives. With Randy Harris, I co-authored Living Jesus: Doing What Jesus Says in the Sermon on the Mount and you can learn about other books I've written at my web site, www.gregtaylor.org. My most recent book co-authored with Randy is Daring Faith: Meeting Jesus in the Book of John.
