Alumni from The Christian Training Institute, North American Baptist College, North American Baptist Divinity School, Edmonton Baptist Seminary and Taylor University College and Seminary got together for a time of celebration, fun and fellowship and reconnect with classmates, teammates faculty and staff.

About Taylor Alumni Relations

Our Mandate

The ministry of Christian higher learning is essential to alumni of Taylor College & Seminary. By establishing a lifelong connection with and between alumni, Alumni Relations develops continued fellowship in Christ among past Taylor students and graduates.

Our Role

Since alumni play such a vital role in the life of our school, Alumni Relations keeps you advised of exciting developments both at Taylor and involving alumni around the world. We profile significant achievements made by alumni and promote worthy projects in support of Taylor College & Seminary.

The Alumni Association

The Alumni Association is composed of graduates and former students who have successfully completed at least 30 hours of study at Taylor College & Seminary since its inception as the Christian Training Institute.

Associate membership is granted to Trustees and the school's administration, faculty and staff. The Association currently has a membership of over 3,000 individuals.

Recently, the Alumni Association has begun to play a more significant role in the life of Taylor, especially in offering support and encouragement during a time of significant change. We are pleased to encourage a reestablishment of the Alumni Executive and recommend that you check back from time to time for updates on that process.

Be in touch with us to learn more about what we do and how you can be involved.

Dear Taylor Alumnus,

We recognize that it has been a long time since we have communicated with you and for that we sincerely apologize. On behalf of a group of volunteers, serving in the role of an interim Alumni Executive, we are reaching out to the alumni of CTI/NABC//NABDS/EBS/TUCS/Taylor College and Seminary. 

Like many Christian colleges and seminaries, Taylor has experienced a period of time filled with many challenges and uncertainties with respect to the future of its ministries.  As a core constituency, it is very important for Taylor Alumni to continue lending wisdom and voice to the future directions of Taylor. 

With this objective in mind, we are calling a Meeting of Alumni on December 10 at Stencel Hall.  We will begin with coffee and refreshments at 8:30 AM followed by our meeting to start at 9:00 AM and to conclude with a light lunch.  We are officially calling this meeting of the Alumni Association and proposing the following agenda for this meeting:

* A review and reflection of recent changes to Taylor, followed by a Q & A session.
* An outline of Taylor College & Seminary today; including a time for dialogue on challenges and opportunities.
* Future ministry opportunities at Taylor and our opportunity to participate in these future directions. 
* The role of the Taylor Alumni Association.
* To elect leadership for the Alumni Association.

Taylor College and Seminary is turning some important ‘corners’ and we are strongly encouraging you, as members of the Alumni Association, to participate in this meeting.  This effort is being welcomed and supported by Taylor’s board and leadership and we believe Alumni can provide important direction to the future of our alma mater. 

In order to help us prepare for the meeting, please respond to the questionnaire that has been developed by the association.  This questionnaire has been mailed out to members and may be returned by mail, faxed to us at 780-436-9416, attached to an email and sent to, or completed online by clicking on the following link to the survey:   

Also, if you are unable to respond online or by mail, you can respond to this survey by phone by calling Sandy Heavenor at 1-800-567-4988, ext. 206.

Your input will help provide the framework for a more productive time together.  If you are unable to attend but would like a written summary of our meeting, please let us know that and provide us with the appropriate contact information.   In the meantime, I would also ask that you continue praying for Taylor and that you contact other alumni to ensure we have reached as many as possible.  As alumni of our deep and far-reaching school heritage, I trust you share our hope and belief that Taylor continues to have an important role in advancing the Kingdom by developing people for ministry in the church and in the world.

Thank you for your consideration.

In Christ,  

Brad Kahler,
Past-President, Taylor Alumni Association
