On February 22, Joni will receive Biola University’s Charles W. Colson Conviction and Courage Award! Recipients of this award demonstrate a commitment to the unshakeable truths of a biblical worldview, as well as a willingness to act on biblical convictions, however risky or challenging it may be.
"Joni Eareckson Tada has long been a shining light in the Christian world, a woman whose life has been a testimony of conviction, courage, and compassion," said Biola President, Barry H. Corey. "Our award selection committee wanted to honor Joni's convictions as they are expressed in her tireless advocacy for the disabled; the worldwide impact she has made through books and articles on suffering and disability; and the courage she has demonstrated in living a Christ-honoring life as a disabled person."
Joni will also speak at their Founder's Day chapel when she receives the award. To watch the ceremony, tune in on Biola's Facebook page for a Live event.
