Christmas Day: Fully Alive Through Proclamation

As I meditate on the story of the birth of Jesus, I am impressed by the response of the shepherds. “When they had seen him, they spread the word concerning what had been told them about this child, and all who heard it were amazed at what the shepherds said to them.”


Advent Wk. 4: Fully Alive Through Love

As one whose “love language” is giving gifts, I am continually confounded by the length of the customer service lines the day after Christmas. I believe that any gift one gives should absolutely fit the recipient. Those long lines are made up of individuals whose gifts did not “fit.” “Fit” refers to personality, size, wants, or needs.


Advent Wk. 3: Fully Alive Through Steadfastness

I was a young mom, working full-time at Sioux Falls Seminary and trying to be the best mom, wife, employee, daughter, daughter-in-law, sister, friend, and Christian possible. The responsibility I felt to “do it right” was overwhelming me. I felt like I was going crazy. When I shared my feelings . . .


Advent Wk. 2: Fully Alive Through Service

“When the angels had left them and gone into heaven, the shepherds said to one another, ‘Let us go now to Bethlehem and see this thing that has taken place, which the Lord has made known to us.’ So they went with haste and found Mary and Joseph, and the child lying in the manger.

Believe it or not, Advent begins in just a few weeks. On the first Sunday of Advent, we often sing, “O come, O come, Emmanuel, and ransom captive Israel, that mourns in lonely exile here, until the Son of God appear.” The reality for many of us, however, is that Advent is simply a call to prepare for the chaos of the Christmas season.


EWP Talk: The Economy of God in Ephesians

Seminary professor Nathan Hitchcock recently presented a talk on the economy of God in Ephesians as part of the Economic Wisdom Project (EWP) Talks. The presentation coincides with the upcoming 2018 Karam Forum in Los Angeles in January at which he will participate as a collaborator.


The Formational Impact of Discernment

It was a beautiful summer experience at Crystal Springs Camp in Medina, North Dakota. As campers we had been intentionally discipled by dedicated pastors and counselors. On the final evening of camp, the camp pastor spoke of committing our lives, our entire lives to the Lordship of Christ. As I reflect on that time...


Stewardship Report: Strategic Partnerships

Sioux Falls Seminary exists to develop servants for their participation in the kingdom mission. One of the ways we fulfill this mission is to invite others to join us. Good partnerships benefit each partner and impact the kingdom in ways that we cannot do on our own. For us, partnerships often form in one of three ways.


Spotlight: Partnership with Ethos

Sioux Falls Seminary believes theological education works best when it integrates with and utilizes learning and formational experiences from kingdom-minded partners. We work diligently to find these partners and are excited to highlight our work with the North American Baptist Conference and Forge Canada through Ethos.
