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 I begin my service as Chief Academic Officer and Dean of Sioux Falls Seminary, 1 Peter 4:10 reminds me that whatever strengths and abilities I bring to my new role are for one overarching purpose: to serve others. That service is the key to what our seminary is all about.
1 Peter 4:10 encourages each of us to use whatever gifts we have received to serve others as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms. I have had the privilege to interact with hundreds of Sioux Falls Seminary students in the last decade.
We are blessed through the faithful stewardship of volunteers who share their time and talent to help us live out our kingdom calling. Our volunteers bless the lives of seminary students and community members by using whatever gifts they have received to honor God.
On June 30, I officially retire as Academic Vice President and Dean and Professor of Homiletics and Christian Ministry at our seminary. While I have been here, I have sought to use my gifts of teaching and administration to help our students prepare for service.
