Fearless Leaders
with apologies to Boris & Natasha
T
he SFTS Alumni Council is a group
of dedicated alums whose purpose
is to strengthen relations between
alumni, the seminary and the greater
church. The Council is available to con-
sider your ideas, questions, and suggestions
for the life of the seminary and the alumni
community.
The Council is 15 strong and meets for
two days twice a year. Between meetings a
great deal goes on by phone and email.
For example, we have had three work-
ing groups involved in program develop-
ment:
ENROLLMENT WORK GROUP
(convener Jim Robertson, Cheryl Finch,
Sam Roberts, Scott Sullender and Der-
rick Weston) to help SFTS expand enroll-
ment.
STUDENT SUPPORT WORK
GROUP
(convener Jack Hodges, Gail
Doering, Jeff Ferguson, Deana Reed, Don
“Cash” Register and Steve Wirth) to pro-
vide spiritual and material support to SFTS
students and their families.
FUNDS DEVELOPMENT WORK
GROUP
(convener John Worthington,
Don Barnes, John Evans, John Harris and
Jeannie Kim) to aid the seminary’s fund-
raising efforts.
A new Working Group will focus on an
SFTS partnership with the Presbyterian
Church 1001 New Worshipping Commu-
nities program and supporting Advanced
Pastoral Studies (convener John Worthing-
ton, Gail Doering, and Jeannie Kim).
