Not only does the SFTS faculty embrace new paradigms of what it means to be “church,” they approach the teaching task with a keen awareness of the challenges and opportunities for re-fashioning seminary education. This faculty is a team that is committed to engaging their gifts of creativity, fluidity, and generosity of spirit.
—Rev. Mary Lynn Tobin (1985 MDiv) SFTS Trustee
