The third annual Alumni Institute will take place March 11-12, 2021, at The Shepherd’s Church. Over that Thursday and Friday, Shepherds professors will teach a series of sessions over a specific topic relating to contemporary issues in theology and church ministry. The Alumni Institute brings together current and former students for continued growth and edification, while also allowing non-alumni to participate for a fee. Please join us for an edifying and refreshing time of fellowship and instruction!
We also offer housing for those alumni needing overnight accommodations. Housing is provided on a first-come, first-served basis.
In addition to making the event available in-person, we will be live-streaming the sessions via Zoom. The Zoom link will be provided upon registration if you elect this option. Additionally, please note that our on-campus personnel and all campus visitors are required to practice social distancing and wear face coverings, due to COVID-19.
