With some 1000 plus alumni scattered all around the world, how can we best serve and encourage them? How can we nurture a personal relationship with those 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 the 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 Boston, Chicago, Greensboro, Philadelphia, Omaha, Dallas, Tulsa, San Antonio, Colorado Springs, Nashville, Atlanta, Seattle, Jupiter, and Tampa, Florida. We have encouraged and been encouraged by more than a thousand alumni, friends of the seminary, and watched as dozens of men say yes and are now attending classes at TMS.
This fall we are planning to host banquets in Long Island Marriott Hotel & Conference Center in New York, Tuesday, September 30th and at the Washington Dulles Airport Marriott in Washington D.C., Thursday, October 2nd. If you are interested in attending or know people in those areas that may wish to attend, please send us an email directed to either Bob White firstname.lastname@example.org or Ray Mehringer email@example.com.
Together for the Gospel,
