Today, youTheology celebrated with Kimberly Swartz as she graduated with her Master of Divinity from Saint Paul School of Theology. Kim is the first of thee youTheology alumni to graduate from Saint Paul. This was a great moment for us since we are a program of the school.
There are others who have graduated from seminaries before: Melinda Smits, Cindy Heilman, and Austin Rivera. We are thankful for their witness and grateful for the privilege of having been a part of their journey.
One of the key recognitions in youTheology is that we are all called to ministry as baptized believers. We therefore celebrate with the other alumni who are graduating and have graduated from colleges and are making their marks as teachers, researchers, and in other important areas. We are richer because of their ministries.
May is a great month for us as we see our alumni leave school and move into their places of call. Thank you for your support as we continue to develop faithful leaders for a diverse church and world.
CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL OUR GRADUATES!
