It is always exciting to see individuals and organizations coming together for meaningful purpose, especially when it involves families and children. On Friday, April 28th Directors of regional Christian preschools and clergy from their host congregations will be on campus for a Faith-filled Families informational lunch. This is a valuable opportunity for VTS hospitality to support our efforts in the Lilly Endowment Inc. Christian Parenting Initiative.
Faith-filled Families is a testament to the importance of supporting families in raising their children with strong faith foundations. Led by Project Director, Donna Sweeting (MA ‘22), our vision is to strengthen the formation ecology between congregation, school, and family for the sake of nurturing children’s spirituality. By inviting local leaders to campus, we hope to model the importance of their ministries and our commitment to providing rich resources and support through trusted relationships.
If you see our visitors on campus Friday, please extend the hand of fellowship to them. Introduce yourself and welcome them as an ambassador of our Seminary mission. Ask them about their work with children and families. Let us welcome our guests so that together we may love and honor God’s children everywhere.
The Very Rev. Ian S. Markham, Ph.D.
