Servant Event Group Leader Orientation

On Wednesday during Orientation Week, students, faculty, and staff will head out to various parts of the Saint Louis area to provide four hours of service.  Rev. Bill Wrede, Director of Ministerial Recruitment and Admissions said, “This is a wonderful opportunity for our students to serve our community, get to know the Saint Louis area, and become acquainted with their new classmates, faculty, and staff.”  This is the Seminary’s fifth year serving with Gateway Greening, Compass Schools, Center for New Americans, and other agencies.
