Printable Registration Form: 2014 Alumni Days Registration

In the initial phase of this initiative, Pathway to the Future, we looked to our alumni for their support to revitalize our chapel – the centerpiece of our community.  Thank you for your support of the alumni chapel and for the renovation of this sacred space.  

Our campaign is now focused on building our endowment and constructing our new learning center.  This two level, 10,000 sq/ft facility will address the dual issues of space in a fifty-year old building and the need for advanced technologies to foster learning and research.  Its location, adjacent to the front facade of the seminary, signifies the seminary’s commitment to continue our mission into the future.
