Information for our graduates!

Dear Graduate,

Congratulations!  It will be a joy to celebrate with you God’s faithfulness, the successful completion of your seminary studies, and the beginning of a new stretch of your ministry journey.  Along with you, your family and friends are warmly invited to attend the Baccalaureate and Commencement events as scheduled.  In the next week we will add more specific information for this Commencement from Dr. Beth McCaw.

MAMC/DMin Colloquy

Dear DMin/MAMD graduates, DMin cohort leaders and project advisors:

Below please find below the schedule for our MAMD/DMin Colloquy, which is slated for the afternoon of May 11, 2017, beginning at 1:00 PM.

Presentations should be 20 minutes long, with an additional 5 minutes reserved for questions, and 5 minutes reserved for a comfortable margin and possible break, as needed.

If you received an invitation to join us for a celebratory dinner, food and non-alcoholic drinks courtesy of the DMin program and UDTS will be held at 5 PM on May 11, at Champps restaurant, which is located in the Best Western at 3100 Dodge Street, Dubuque.

This will be a great opportunity to relax and give thanks for the good work the Spirit has inspired and brought to completion through your study and labor. We hope you can join us for this informal, but joyous, fellowship and celebration!
