The 2016-2017 Annual Report chronicles our progress and new initiatives during the past year, and there is indeed much to celebrate. We have welcomed new faculty members, our new master of divinity curriculum is in full swing, and the Forging Our Future $100 million capital campaign was successfully completed ahead of schedule. For this and so much more, we give thanks!  However, we also know now is not the time to rest on our laurels. It is rather a time to be steadfast in pursuing the goals we have set and to continue fulfilling our identity as a servant seminary of Jesus Christ, boldly believing with former president, Horace Greely Smith, that Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary does have a place in the purposes of God.

We pray that you will enjoy reading about the ministry of our seminary and we encourage you to get involved, pray for our students and faculty, and support our mission to prepare bold, articulate spiritual leaders for the world.
