A goal as large as it is important

It’s a goal as large as it is important: full tuition scholarships for all LTSP students. We have received an overwhelmingly positive response from all quarters of the church to this initiative thus far, as people recognize the need to provide much more support to our students. Along with the positive comments, I have also heard several questions that I will try to address here.

Finding seminary where you are

If you asked me to give you a tour of the seminary I attended, I’d bring you to the Starbucks on Delaware Avenue in Buffalo, New York. I’d show you the large black table where I would spread my theology textbooks and Greek New Testament book. I’d point out the power outlet that played such an essential role in my study sessions. I’d introduce you to George and Peggy, my non-matriculating, unintentional classmates. And I’d tell you that if you really wanted to understand my full seminary experience then you should order a small bowl of oatmeal and a grande blonde roast.
