Reunion 2022 highlights

A highlight of our alumni reunion is worshipping together in the Seminary Chapel every day. We’ll begin our reunion experience with worship led by President Barnes on Monday. On Tuesday, we’ll continue our worship with a Service of Remembrance and Celebration honoring alumni who recently passed away. On Wednesday, we’ll close our reunion with worship and communion, remembering the ties that bind us and that God is good.

Another reunion highlight is our keynote, and this year, our speaker is Kate Bowler, a New York Times bestselling author and professor at Duke Divinity School. Bowler will deliver an inspiring keynote lecture titled “The Perfectibility Paradigm.” If you aren’t familiar with her, we highly suggest you watch her TED Talk here.

In addition to reconnecting with classmates, you’ll also have several opportunities to connect with our beloved professors, whether in a Bible study, workshop, or panel as they share their testimonies. Additionally, campus partners will lead the following various affinity workshops on topics relevant for your contexts and ministries:

David Latimore, gathering for Black church scholars and leaders 
Easten Law, gathering for Asian American scholars and leaders 
Joanne Rodríguez and Victor Aloyo, Jr., gathering for Latinx scholars and leaders
Lindsey Jodrey, workshop for LGBTQIA+ scholars and leaders
Abigail Rusert, workshop for youth pastors
Nate Stucky, ecological workshop at the Farminary
Erin Raffety, workshop for pastors related to thriving congregations
Anne Stewart and Thais Carter, workshop for women in ministry

There will also be plenty of opportunities to break bread together and rest. The best part, of course, is that we get to be together. Whether on campus or online, we can’t wait to welcome you back.
