By the Rev. Margot Perez-Greene, Ph.D.

Dear Friends:

We have made it through quite a journey these past 9 months in recruitment and will continue to shift our recruitment from travel to Zoom meeting opportunities to draw individuals called to ministry. We are counting on you to share this event calendar with those in your churches, community agencies, institutions of higher learning, or wherever God has placed you in your ministry. Thank you for all that you do for Perkins School of Theology.

Happy New Year!
