Julie Justus Williams reflects on how her time at the International Baptist Theological Seminary (IBTS) in 2004–2005 provided a foundation for ministry at the Baptist World Alliance (BWA) as the Director of Global Partnerships and Unity. At IBTS, Justus Williams experienced unity in Christ through intentional community, diversity, and corporate worship. The essential oneness in Christ that she witnessed in community at IBTS is instructive to her success at the BWA, and to carrying out the ministry entrusted to her by the worldwide Baptist family. The lessons she learned and relationships she created at IBTS are indispensable as she serves the BWA community of 47 million.
