This past September, we welcomed our newest students to the seminary. As they prepare for a life of ministry, these students desire to be stretched theologically, to be culturally competent and aware of their social location, and to be mentored and empowered in their practice of ministry. They seek to renew and redefine what it means to be a minister, a Christian community organizer, a chaplain, a faith-based non-profit leader, and more. The demands and commitments of those actively pursing their vocational calling may be great, but we are confident they will rise to the challenge.
We hope you enjoy getting to know nine of our newest seminarians in the winter issue of Aware. They, along with the entire student body, remain our greatest hope.
