On September 1, we celebrated the start of our 158th academic year! The convocation service was a wonderful event not only because we celebrated the beginning of a new academic year, but also because we welcomed Dr. Larry Caldwell as the Chief Academic Officer.
We're excited to explore The Great Commission and how theological education has sought to serve that mission over time. We will look at the history of theological education, ask how we've progressed, and seek to understand the systems that have brought us to today.
We are excited to announce our next Women in Community event series offering - Wholehearted! We invite you to join us in Sioux Falls or Omaha on September 25 and 24, respectively. If you find yourself seeking God in all aspects of your life, you’ll want to join us for this day of dialogue, reflection, and discovery!
Stewardship matters. That's why we've been using our gifts to serve others. As Chief Operating Officer, I spend much of my time thinking about how we can steward organizational resources for maximum kingdom effectiveness. This happens many different ways.
The past 15 months have been a celebration of God’s work, and we referred to this season as, Immeasurably More. Over those months, we have seen God raise up new partnerships, expand financial resources, and lead our institution through a process of renewal.
The end of the semester is around the corner. I look forward to celebrating commencement with our seminary family. As we conclude our discussion on participation in God’s mission, I’m challenging our graduates to step out and boldly follow God into mission and to consider their work in light of what God is doing in the world.
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.
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.
