This week on Office Hours we hear from graduates of Westminster Seminary California and others from across the globe who have benefited from the work of the seminary as they reflect on thirty years of being Valiant for Truth at WSC. You won’t want to miss this special episode of Office Hours recorded during the recent faculty conference, Christ, Kingdom, and Culture. You can hear the latest Office Hourshere.
Praise God for his preservation–30 years is a long time for a seminary to remain faithful these days.
Now, celebrate by building some married housing out there so I can afford to come & study…
Indeed Andrew, we’re deeply thankful to God for his mercies to WSC.
If you haven’t talked to the Financial Aid office or to Mark MacVey (888 480 8474) in the last two weeks, you should do so. There have been developments that might help you.
Additionally, I encourage students who are in a Reformed congregation to be bold to ask their session/consistory and their congregations to help them go to seminary. It’s a great investment in the future of the church. Pastors don’t just drop out of the sky. It’s not like you’re asking for a handout or asking for candy, you’re asking for help to get the best possible training you can in order to fulfill your vocation in service to Christ. That’s important. It’s also not as if you’re going to school to enter a highly lucrative vocation/profession. So, there’s nothing wrong with asking for help to undertake such a worthy endeavor. I had help through seminary and I’m very grateful. I hope the folks who helped me still think it was a good investment. Give Mark and/or Barb a call to see what’s going on.
developments, eh? I’ll call Mark tomorrow after school, then.
Thank you for the heads-up, Dr. Clark–I wouldn’t have seen Mr. MacVey again until the PCRT in Grand Rapids (assuming he’s coming, that is).
I just came across this website which offers financial assistance to individuals and churches for the sake of theological education. Have you heard anything about it?
Yes. I believe it’s legitimate and that students here have been recipients.
Students or prospective students who are interested should call our financial aid dept.
