October 13, 2014

Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary will be participating in the Seminary Caravan stopping in three states in the Midwest October 20-22, 2014. The Seminary Caravan will feature 12 of the 13 United Methodist Church (UMC) seminaries. Students will have an opportunity to meet with representatives to discuss what a theological education entails and to learn more about each seminary’s unique offerings.

“The Seminary Caravan is a great way for individuals thinking of taking the next step of their call to get a feel of what seminary is all about. Prospective students will be able to have face-to-face conversations with seminary representatives and find answers to the questions that aren’t easily answered by a quick search of the website,” said Rev. Becky Eberhart, Associate VP for Enrollment Management.

The Seminary Caravan’s first stop will be on October 20th in Chicago, IL at the First UMC at the Chicago Temple from 5:30-8 PM. The second stop will be on October 21st in Evansville, IN at the University of Evansville from 5-8 p.m..
