This past Saturday, we celebrated the 159th graduating class of Sioux Falls Seminary. What an exciting time! We came together to mark the culmination of each student’s journey and to rejoice in the new season of life into which they are entering. Our focus on what it means to be “fully alive” seems fitting.
We walk alongside those God places in our care as we help them “use whatever gift [they] have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms” (1 Peter 4:10). This includes individuals in relation to our work in theological education and in counseling services.
Seminaries have seen a number of variations in the types of students that they serve, including variations in denomination, location, age, purpose of enrollment, etc. We believe it is vital to understand who God is calling us to serve so we might walk alongside those God places in our care.
Join us on Friday, May 12, 2017, for the naming and dedication of our chapel space in honor of Professor Emeritus Dr. Ted Faszer and his wife, Marietta. The celebration will begin with hors d'oeuvres at 5:45 p.m. in the lobby of the seminary and be followed by a service of worship and ceremony of dedication at 6:30 p.m. RSVP by May, 5.
As we embrace our role in God’s mission, steward his creation, and participate in his ongoing work, our role as image-bearers requires us to serve others in the name of Christ. One way we do this is through our annual Rosebud Immersion Experience, which will take place on July 8-14 this year.

This year the spring intensive of the Kairos Project falls very near the heart of the Christian calendar.

We bring our Discernment, Call, and Discipleship series to a close with a second article from Rob Loane, Interim President and Educational Designer at VantagePoint3.

We continue on our Discernment, Call, and Discipleship series by sharing two articles from our friends at VantagePoint3. This week’s article is written by Rob Loane and looks at how honoring the particular in every person’s story can have a transformational impact. Next week's article will focus on the topic of discipleship.
Last week, we began a series of articles that we are sharing from seminary friends and partners in ministry, all of which focus on either discernment, call, or discipleship. This week we are pleased to share an article by Christy Fay, which was shared through her website. Fay feels deeply called to the study and teaching of God’s Word.
