Friends & Alumni
No institution can thrive and continue to offer quality education without the generosity of faithful alumni and friends. Being called to ministry is an exciting venture, but one that does not come without expense. You have the opportunity to play an integral part in the equipping of servant leaders who engage the mission of Jesus Christ.
On March 21, 2014, I had to privilege of being formally appointed as the 12th president of Sioux Falls Seminary. As the seminary community stepped boldly into the mission and ministry God placed in front of us, we identified Ephesians 3:20-21 as a passage of Scripture that could embody our journey.
Last week, I shared a bit on the power of stories. Over the next year, we are going to dive deeply into the concept of storytelling. All of us have a story to tell. Sioux Falls Seminary’s story is intimately connected to the stories of the individuals and organizations we have the opportunity to walk alongside. God does amazing work in and through his people.
A lot of new research has found that the human brain is wired to find meaning in narrative. We are in fact biologically predisposed to find meaning in narrative. When we share stories, we should be prepared to see those stories impact people in many different ways. Stories provide an opportunity to see how God is at work within the body of Christ.
As we conclude our conversation on what it means to be “fully alive” in light of our mission, we began last week by reflecting on the post that introduced the series. This week, we close our two-part series by sharing some of the highlights of our conversation. A few key scripture verses inspired us along the way.
