2023 Rodney Sisco Symposium
In an ever-increasing diverse yet deeply divided mission field, there is a great need for the equipping and releasing of reconciling, justice-oriented and culturally intelligent disciple-makers. We will explore biblical theology, ministry praxis, and spiritual rhythms for engaging our world as influencers for God’s kingdom.
With its triune social storms of political polarization, racial unrest, and the pandemic, the year 2020 created a new opportunity for Christian leaders to rise for such a time as this.
The Inspiration For The Symposium
Rodney K. Sisco was a strong pillar in a vast, multifaceted community, whose life work was centered around providing wise leadership in pursuit of the Christ-centered vision of racial and ethnic diversity in Christian higher education. Rodney served as the Director of the Office of Multicultural Development at Wheaton College as well as was elected to the national office of the Association for Christians in Student Development, where he served as the Executive Committee’s Chair of Diversity. Apart from his career, Rodney was active in his local church, a leader in Caribbean-American community, a father to Juwan and Jabari and a husband of 30 and half years to Hasana.

Who We Are
The Symposium is intended to continue Rodney Sisco’s legacy of advocating for “…being the body of Christ is that we understand what grace is. Grace says that we are to be patient with each other. We spend time with each other. We’re preparing young men and women to know…how to be people who are able to engage with difference and conflict in a way that still says we’re doing it as men and women of God.”
