Tabor Celebrates Martin Luther King Day

Students are taught about Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s dream. He envisioned a world where his children would not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character. In a tumultuous time, Martin Luther King Jr. led a civil rights movement that focused on nonviolent protest.

In honor of Rev. Martin Luther King Day (Jan. 20), Jay Johnson, lead pastor of the Zion Brethren in Christ Church in Abilene KS, presented the following chapel address to remind Tabor students of Dr. King’s courage and dream.  Pastor Jay grew up in Philadelphia and became a follower of Jesus in August 1976. He has lived all over the country, working in Christian radio for more than 30 years. Pastor Jay is married and has four grown children and four grandchildren.
