Author, Speaker and Church Planter Jo Saxton - Coming to Judson

Jo Saxton(ELGIN, IL – March 9, 2018) She has written several books, appeared on national TV programs and helped to plant churches around the globe. Now, international leadership trainer and coach Jo Saxton is headed to Judson University as the guest speaker for the Ministry in Leadership Forum on Thursday, April 5, at 6:30 p.m. in the Creekside South Building. She will also speak in the Preview Day chapel at 10 a.m. on Friday, April 6, in Herrick Chapel. Both events are free and open to the public.

Saxton, a Nigerian Londoner, has served at churches in the United Kingdom and throughout America and is currently chair of the Board for 3D Movements, a non-profit organization that equips churches in discipleship and mission. She also serves on the advisory board for Today's Christian Woman, and co-hosts the podcast, “Lead Stories: Tales of Leadership and Life,” with Steph O’Brien. Additional, she co-pastors Mission Point Church outside of Minneapolis, Minn., with her husband, Chris.

Saxton has authored and co-authored more than a half dozen books. Her latest, “The Dream of You: Let Go of Broken Identities and Live the Life You Were Made For” (WaterBrook, 2018), challenges readers to confront their past and to live authentically.

“Life’s difficulties can leave us questioning our purpose, calling and identity,” said Christian Ministries Chair Kimberly Budd. “This event with Jo Saxton will inspire all ministry leaders to live the life God has designed for us.”

Judson’s Ministry in Leadership Forum is hosted by the Christian Ministries Department. Its purpose is to provide an open forum that fosters the development of ministry leaders through engagement with innovative thinkers in the field. The event is designed to be interactive, giving participants the opportunity to dialogue with the speaker and others throughout the night of the forum.

The first forum in 2015 featured author and attorney Bob Goff. In subsequent years, the forum has welcomed speaker, preacher and author Efrem Smith and Transforming Center founder Dr. Ruth Haley Barton.

Judson is excited to welcome Saxton as the 2018 forum speaker on Thursday, April 5. On Friday morning, she will speak in Judson’s last Preview Day chapel of the school year, when prospective students and their parents will visit campus and attend chapel along with the Judson community.

The chapel service free and open to the public.
