Will You Help Me Develop Innovative Leaders for God’s Service Today?

Dear Friend,

If it is June, it must be time to begin the rounds of summer meetings.  Indeed, this year has been no exception, with first the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship Annual Gathering in Atlanta, followed on its heels by the American Baptist Churches-USA Mission Summit in Portland. As is always the case, I come away from these meetings invigorated by the numerous conversations and challenged by the ongoing changes in theological education and the Church.

I am grateful that you can participate in what God is doing in the lives of people like EyeRei Yoo and Amber and Scotti Simpson. (Click on their story links) These are just a sample of the students we are privileged to prepare for this new era in God’s service. Your faithful support makes this kind of ministry preparation possible.




Of course, the opportunity to prepare students (over 500 this year!) creates additional funding needs. Fortunately, as we approach our fiscal year-end on July 31, we have been blessed to have been offered a $30,000 matching gift challenge.  Help us double your gift!  Every gift we receive will be matched up to $30,000 as we approach our year-end.  Your gift will go twice as far towards helping us fund our mission.
