Rev. Dr. Donna Cox has a faith that shouts from the rooftops and a divine connection that shows through her art and love for others. She’s a realist and an artist, a dreamer and a believer. Working in full-time ministry, she uses every opportunity – teaching, art, and hospitality – to show the heart of God. Described by her husband as driven and focused, Dr. Cox is a vibrant, diverse member of the campus community, and those around her notice her presence.
For two nonconsecutive days, I spent time with Cox in the choir room, at church and her home. From handing out coffee to the elderly woman at church to running off to buy groceries for the middle school basketball team that would be coming over for dinner, Cox exemplified a spirit of giving. She uses her gifts and shares them – sometimes quietly, sometimes boldly.
