Last night, Institutional Advancement held a virtual event for friends to relaunch our capital campaign. Vice President Linda Dienno navigated (after some instruction from Jeff Harre) the complexities of the zoom; the Rev. Dr. Barney Hawkins and I hosted the event; we had over thirty guests attending; and we used it as an opportunity to learn from those present how we can do this work in better ways. Our Bicentennial will only happen once. We will give to the future a campus ready for the formation of church leaders. We are committed to an array of construction projects and program initiatives. God willing, countless lives will be changed by the ministry of VTS in the future. Many of our graduates will serve congregations and non-profits. They will spread the Gospel and kingdom values, bringing hope to many as they struggle with the demands of living.
