President’s November Newsletter

Dear Friends,

Happy Thanksgiving! I am so grateful for your support of Northern Seminary.

Earlier this month, I participated in a webinar entitled “Preaching that Awakens.” I reflected on the church’s role in our society and shared ways that preaching can awaken congregations to the call of Christ. I hope this message from Acts 16 inspires you. Many thanks to the Ministers Council of American Baptist Churches, U.S.A. for hosting!
