September 27 Open House to Honor Hagan

September 27 Open House to Honor Hagan

September 3, 2013

In 1984, Dr. Mike Hagan joined the Sioux Falls Seminary community.  As a Professor of Old Testament and Hebrew Bible, Mike invested much time and energy in the spiritual and academic growth of his students.  His leadership as both Academic Vice President and Dean and as President enabled the seminary to grow with the many changes taking place in the world of theological education and into a new environmentally-friendly, technologically-advanced, and community-oriented campus.

In honor of his 29 years of ministry at Sioux Falls Seminary, you are invited to join us in paying tribute to Mike in three specific ways:

Open House

4-6:00 p.m.
Sioux Falls Seminary Lobby

The Board of Trustees will be hosting a public reception for Mike and Barbie on Friday, September 27, from 4:00-6:00 pm.  You are encouraged to stop by the seminary for light refreshments and to personally express your thanks and best wishes to President Hagan for 29 years of faithful service to the seminary.  Open to the public.
