Stewardship Report: Learning from the Past

The new year is often a time of setting goals for the future and remembering the past. I’m beginning 2018 with confidence that God will continue the good work that he started at the seminary over 150 years ago.

Stewardship Report: NAB Family

A few weeks back, I mentioned the importance of stewarding relationships. Today, I would like to say a bit more about that, especially at it relates to our relationship with the North American Baptist (NAB) family.
