Pastoral Ministry Graduates
Pastoral Ministry Graduates Class of 2020
Congratulations on completing your Pastoral Ministry Degree. Graduation represents your determination to give God and the Church your very best as you follow God’s calling on your life. We consider it a privilege to have been a part of your ministry preparation.
Thank you for helping us work through all of the adjustments during COVID-19. I pray that what we have learned through this time of crisis has helped to shape your ability to face the unexpected events in life and ministry. As the country opens up, may the Lord open doors for you to preach and teach holiness of heart and life. This is the message that will enable people to find the purpose, meaning, and fulfillment in life for which they are searching.
I pray that you will go forward with a sense of hope and assurance, knowing that the One who called you goes before you and with you. He will be faithful to the end. As you face the challenges ahead, remember this: God is not unjust; he will not forget your work and the love you have shown him as you have helped his people and continue to help them (Hebrews 6:10 NIV).
May the Lord bless you abundantly and make your ministry fruitful for the Kingdom.
Dr. James R. Russom, Director Pastoral Leadership and Pastoral Ministries Programs
