With now more than 1250 alumni scattered around the world -
- How can we best serve and encourage them?
- How can we nurture a personal relationship with like-minded people who partner with us in training men for biblical ministry?
- How can we best explain who we are to those prospective students who are wondering, "Should I attend seminary at TMS?"
These reasons and hundreds more surfaced between TMS Development and Admissions staff back in 2003. This led to the birth of what is known today as TMS Alumni Regional Banquets. Since then we have hosted banquets in Chicago, Philadelphia, Omaha, Tulsa, Colorado Springs, Nashville, Atlanta, New York, Jupiter, and Tampa, Florida. Last year, we visited Dallas, Houston, and San Antonio, Texas. We have encouraged and been encouraged by more than a thousand alumni and friends of the seminary, and have watched as dozens of men have said 'yes' and attended classes at TMS.
|This Fall we are planning to host banquets at the locations and dates below and TMS Vice President and Dean, Dr. Richard Mayhue, will be the keynote speaker for each.|
