Why Should I Support Pittsburgh Theological Seminary?
Imagine the church without pastors and lay leaders who are well prepared in Christian theology, in preaching and in caring for those in spiritual or physical need. The scriptures tell us that leaders in the church need to be faithful stewards of the good news of Jesus Christ. Your gifts to Pittsburgh Theological Seminary ensure that well prepared and faithful men and women will fill those positions for this and coming generations as a part of God’s Kingdom here on earth.
Did you know that at many seminaries only half of those receiving the Master of Divinity degree actually enter the parish ministry upon graduation? At Pittsburgh Seminary, over the past 20 years, nearly 90 percent of our Master of Divinity graduates go into parish ministry.
Did you know that of 680 randomly selected survey respondents who were Hurricane Katrina adult evacuees, 92 percent indicated that religion had played an important role in helping them to “get through” that crisis? At Pittsburgh Seminary our mission is to prepare pastor-theologians who are joyful communicators of the Word and who proclaim God’s message of good news in both word and deed.
Did you know that many of our students come to us already burdened by student loan debt from their undergraduate programs? Of the 53% of our entering class who have undergraduate debt the average indebtedness per student is $18,680. At Pittsburgh Seminary we are committed to minimizing the additional debt that our students incur during their seminary experience.
Please know that your gift makes a difference. It makes a difference for each individual Seminary student, for each church and/or ministry where they will serve in the future and it makes a difference for strengthening Christ’s church.
Thank you for your generous support.
