Episode 13: Interview with Dr Robin Harris

Paul Mac

The arts are sometimes ignored when church planters share the Gospel. In Episode 13 of the AccessTruth Podcast, Dr Robin Harris shares about the importance of arts in understanding culture and worldview.  

A daughter of missionaries, Robin later served in Alaska and then Siberia with her husband. Growing up, her passion was for both culture and music but she didn’t know how to bring the two together. After working with a minority group called the Sakha in Siberia, she discovered local expressions of worship in the church, what in now called ethnodoxology.

Dr Robin Harris is a professor at Dallas International University and, among other leadership roles, is President of the Ethnodoxology Network. She has authored several books, including Storytelling in Siberia.

Paul and his wife, Linda, spent 11 years in Papua New Guinea involved in pioneering church planting in an isolated people group. They were privileged to see God plant a number of churches in that area that continue to thrive today. During the time there, they headed up a translation team that produced a New Testament in the local language. After leaving PNG, Paul and Linda worked for 12 years in leadership and consultative roles with an international mission agency. Today they continue to provide church planting guidance for a number of different teams engaged in some of the world’s most challenging contexts. They are passionate about seeing churches planted that are well equipped to carry on for future generations.
