NEWS – Opportunities and Changes

1 May, 2017

Dear Students and Colleagues,

Grace and peace to each of you.

I’m looking forward to our time together this summer.

I want to share with you some opportunities and changes that will be happening.

I’m excited and pleased that we’ll be hosting a visit from the Rev. Shannon Conklin-Miller. Shannon is the Assistant General Secretary for Clergy Formation at GBHEM. She works specifically with Course of Study and Licensing Schools.

Shannon will be meeting with the faculty and with our Advisory Board. We’ll also be scheduling a time for her to meet with students. Please take this as an opportunity to share your experiences and to ask questions about COS or Licensing School.

Our Graduation celebration will be on Friday, July 14 at 11:45 a.m.

A luncheon will follow. There are no classes that afternoon. It’s my hope that this change allows more students and faculty to be present. It also allows for an earlier start home.

Chapel services are scheduled for June 28, June 30, July 3, July 6, July 10 and July 12, rather than every day. The non-Chapel days can be used for other small groups or meetings. It also provides some additional space to “just breathe”.

Please be reminded that our

registration deadline is May 27.

The sooner you register, the more helpful it is for us as we plan your experience here.

Almost all of our faculty from last year are returning. I’m most grateful for their willingness to serve in this way. I’m also grateful that Dr. Jeff Conklin-Miller will be with us once again.

If we can assist you in any way with questions or concerns, please let us know.

You are in my prayers for your preparations and your ministry.

Blessings always,
