Jo Ann Griffith ’59, John S. McMillan Planned Giving Society Member
Growing up in a Presbyterian pastor’s home, Jo Ann Griffith ’59 had many opportunities to meet missionaries from around the world. Their stories of living as a witness for Christ among people from different nations led her to become a missionary to Africa. For 40 years Jo Ann taught English, Bible, and home economics, while learning to be a “living sacrifice.” “Mission to me,” she explains, “means living out, in a specific geographical context and through a particular task, the command of Christ to be a witness to him. This means struggling, suffering, and enjoying life with others.” Recognizing PTS as a seminary that prepares Christians for such service at home and abroad, Jo Ann has included the Seminary in her estate plan.
Gary and Judy '96 Angleberger, John S. McMillan Planned Giving Society Members
Gary and Judy '96 Angleberger are using a charitable remainder trust to establish an endowed student scholarship at Pittsburgh Seminary. “As we’ve benefitted from the estates of our parents and investments of our own, we’ve realized that our stewardship extends not just to our annual income but also to our accumulated assets, and that the guideline of the biblical tithe should guide our planned giving as well as our current giving. Pittsburgh Seminary has played an important part in our Christian life, and we want its educational and spiritual impact to continue into the future.”
