Sarah Sumner, Ph.D., MBA is President of Right On Mission, a moral courage ministry of mission-minded educators whose vision is to see all Christians faithfully live “on mission” instead of veering “off mission.” Right On Mission specializes in writing customized mission statements for individual believers as well as Christians organizations. As an educational entity, we believe God’s people can learn to think so Christianly that they find the moral courage to act with integrity as Christ followers, even in the face of opposition.

Prior to that, Sarah Sumner was chair of the graduate ministry department at Azusa Pacific University. Prior to that, she was an evangelist on staff at Willow Creek Community Church in South Barrington, Illinois.
