Inside the October 2018 issue you’ll hear from President Lallene J. Rector and her reflections on the upcoming 2019 Special Session of the General Conference of The United Methodist Church. You'll also find our 2017-2018 Annual Report. This particular fiscal year is our second-highest fundraising year ever! We remain grateful to each of you and your loyal giving and we’re already putting these financial gifts to work for our students. Our featured article focuses on our new Vocational Network Program. "We knew that the insight, wisdom, and experience our alums gained from their seminary experience and their careers would be invaluable to our students. . . So, we created a program where our alums could share that with them."
