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.
As we discuss participation in God’s mission, we reflect on why it’s important to help students grow where God has planted them. Possibly more than ever in the life of the church in North America, we need to understand the church is a missionary community. What does that mean for a seminary?
Sioux Falls Seminary actively participates in God’s kingdom is through its continued commitment to our indigenous neighbors. For eight years, we have partnered with Wiconi International to offer an intensive week-long immersion course on the Rosebud Reservation in South central South Dakota.
In the fall of 2013, Sioux Falls Seminary launched a Training in Spiritual Direction program. Two cohorts of students (fall 2013 and fall 2014) have joined us on this journey. But what is spiritual direction? Why does it matter? How can we better understand those we walk alongside as we participate in God’s mission?
This year’s Hiller Lectureship focuses on Christian Community Development. What a great way to explore how the Gospel can be lived out as we discuss participation in God’s mission! The Rev. Dr. Wayne “Coach” Gordon will join us to talk the lasting impact of Christian Community Development.
