Tizon to co-lead Evangelicals for Social Action

When Ron Sider, a prominent evangelical voice for social justice, steps down from his post as president of Evangelicals for Social Action (ESA) in June 2013, GTU alumnus F. Albert "Al" Tizon will share the reins. Tizon (Ph.D. '05) will serve as co-president of the organization with Paul Alexander, a graduate of Baylor, in a "consensus model," according to a post on the organization's website. Currently Tizon serves as Director of Holistic Ministry Programs at ESA.

He is the author of Transformation After Lausanne: Radical Evangelical Mission in Global-Local Perspective (Regnum, 2008); co-author of Linking Arms, Linking Lives: How Urban-Suburban Partnerships Can Transform Communities (Baker, 2008), along with Ron Sider, John Perkins and Wayne Gordon; Missional Preaching: Embrace, Engage, Transform (Judson, 2012); and co-editor of Honoring the Generations: Learning with Asian North American Congregations (Judson, 2012) with Sydney Park and Soong-Chan Rah.
