UTI is 35! Join us! UTI Lecture and Worship Celebration coming Tuesday!
It is with great enthusiasm and excitement that we approach the 35th anniversary of the Urban Theological Institute (UTI) at The Lutheran Theological Seminary at Philadelphia (LTSP) with celebrations on Tuesday, September 22, 2015, and Friday, October 23, 2015. From humble beginnings, UTI has grown and prospered as envisioned by its founders, the Rev. Dr. Andrew Willis and the late Rev. Dr. Randolph Jones. Our ecumenically diverse alumni serve congregations and Christian organizations throughout the Philadelphia Metropolitan area and contiguous areas of New Jersey and Delaware and beyond.
Our 35th anniversary is not only a celebration culminating in a Gala Banquet. It is a major fund-raising activity for the Rev. Dr. Jeremiah A. Wright, Sr. Endowed Chair in African American Studies at LTSP. We are therefore appealing to our alumni and friends to help. Our goal for the Chair is $1.5 million, and since 2004 we have received contributions equal to more than 50% of the goal.
The theme for the celebration is: Celebrating Our Past . . . Building Our Future.
