Taylor Update: Spring 2018
As most of you know, Taylor is in a time of transition. We are moving forward in a number of exciting ways. All of these are things that have been developing for some time. Most of them are quite exciting. Some of them are less so.
Thirteen students graduated from Taylor Seminary on May 6, 2018, mainly with Master of Theological Studies or Master of Divinity degrees. The MTS is a 48-hour program, while the MDiv is a 77-hour program. Both attract students who are looking ahead to ministry, either as a vocation, or as a lay ministry opportunity while continuing to serve in another profession, or serving at home, in their community, or as a volunteer.
Triennial Events at Taylor
Taylor Seminary will welcome many friends and former students to campus this summer as part of the Triennial Conference of the North American Baptist Conference. The conference will take place at the Shaw Conference Centre from July 26-29th. There will be two events at Taylor on the 25th – an Open House for the White Cross Ministry (Wednesday afternoon), and a hymn sing that evening (7-9 PM).
The White Cross Open House will also be a chance to drop off medical and relief supplies for our partners in Cameroon, as numerous Triennial delegates will bring boxes of donations with them as they travel to Edmonton.
Taylor Seminary’s 38th Graduation Ceremony will take place on Sunday, May 6th. Fourteen students will be conferred with degrees and/or diplomas.
The service will take place at West Meadows Baptist Church, and our guest speaker will be Dr. Gary Nelson, President of Tyndale University College and Seminary in Toronto.
