A partnership agreement between Sioux Falls Seminary and Taylor Seminary, signed in June 2015, is uniting these institutions and creating groundbreaking new opportunities in theological education.

This partnership began with a focus on online education, faculty development and global theological education. Over the past two years, the partnership has deepened significantly and has resulted in the integration of some systems, operational functions and academic programming.

The 8th annual onWORD Conference has added a new element for 2017: an art exhibit. Artists are contributing works that are related to our theme as a way for us to reflect and engage with our theme. These works of art will be available for sale through a silent auction.

Another highlight of the conference will be a first-century feast, complete with specially-sourced ancient ingredients. This is a fun opportunity for those who want to really understand and experience the culture and setting of this story.

Taylor's Dr. Randal Rauser has published a new book, one that explores the strangely-confusing nature of grace. It's a book that Dr. Eric Seibert of Messiah College calls "smartly written and wonderfully honest" and which Dr. John Stackhouse promises to purchase "to give to relatives, friends, students—even my own sons."

Congratulations to Academic Dean Dr. Ralph Korner (’82) on the recent publication of his PhD thesis, The Origin and Meaning of Ekklēsia in the Early Jesus Movement (Brill, 2017).
