Good News from United
Here is some more good news about United Theological Seminary:
United is making a significant impact with our online education, designed especially for those who live in regions where on-campus theological education is not available. Our flexible programs allow students to take seminary classes without having to uproot their families and leave careers.
We recently learned that United’s Master of Theological Studies, which can be completed fully online, has been recognized by OnlineColleges.net as one of 2016’s best online Master’s in Theology degree programs in the country. Currently, United also offers a Master of Divinity degree that requires students to spend only two weeks a year on-campus, taking the rest of their courses online and completing their degree within four years.
We are also pleased to share that, after our recent communications about the Second Mile Giving campaign, we have received even more commitments from generous donors, alumni/ae and friends. A total of $720,000 has been committed to date, so we are 60% towards our $1.2 million goal after the first month of the campaign.
The Second Mile campaign enables our students to receive scholarships for their seminary education and allows United to end our fiscal year in the black on June 30, 2016.
The Association of Theological Schools (ATS) visitation team asked us to give them a report on our Second Mile Giving campaign by April 15, 2016. If you are considering making a gift to the Second Mile campaign by June 30, 2016, and you can send in your gratitude card before April 15, that would allow us to reflect those pledges in our report to ATS. You can also email a pledge to firstname.lastname@example.org or give today at give.united.edu.
We thank God for the generosity of those who have already made a commitment and for those who are still praying about what God calls them to do.
Jesus once said, “Give and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, will be put into your lap” (Luke 6:38). We thank God for all He has first given to us, and we give back to God out of gratitude for all our blessings in life.
Grace and Peace,
