Anne Snyder’s “Turning the Tide” Shared With National Association of Evangelicals

In the thought-leader magazine Comment, editor-in-chief Anne Snyder asserts, “We need a Nyackized movement of doers and thinkers, across city, suburb, and agrarian community.” The basis for her praise, which comes after she attended a Nyack College commencement ceremony several years ago, has been shared with yet another audience.

The National Association of Evangelicals (NAE) reprinted Ms. Snyder’s article, “Turning the Tide,” in the November newsletter to NAE members. The article was the text of a speech she presented this fall in which she stated, “When every faculty member gets up at Nyack’s commencement before the graduating students with a word of exhortation, you see an institution fuelled by relational genius, operating from an understanding that great and consequential human journeys only advance by parking for a spell in the blessing of spiritual mothers and fathers, active service in the community of concern, and the one on one.”

Headquartered in Washington, D.C. with staff and colleagues located across our nation, the NAE represents more than 45,000 local churches from 40 different denominations and serves a constituency of millions.
