You’re Invited: Campaign Celebration Reception
You are invited to attend a gathering of faculty, staff, students, and supporters of the Seminary on October 6 to celebrate the successful close of the Listen! God is Calling campaign. We have exceeded the fundraising goal for the Listen! God is Calling campaign, for the future of the church. More than 15,000 faithful investors have given over $98 million, since July 1, 2016.
This celebration is a thank you to the entire community for the success of the campaign. We would not have exceeded the campaign goal without your involvement!
If you’re in the area and able to join us, we’d love to celebrate with you on October 6 in the Olson Campus Center, beginning at 4:30pm. We’ll have appetizers, beverages, and live music from Rolf Jacobson’s band, the Fleshpots of Egypt.
