NEW ANNUAL ALUMNI EVENTS
Another feature of the new Alumni Association is the annual events we begin to host henceforth. While these events will be open to the students, and even the public,
they are particularly designed to minister to our alumni who are laboring for the Lord in their various fields of endeavor.
Special guest speakers, an alumni luncheon, and opportunities to strengthen old ties and make new connections as well will all be a part of these annual gatherings, and we hope that you will make every effort to be a part of them.
One important aim of the Alumni Association is to aid members in networking together. If your ministry has need of a music minister or an associate pastor, there may be another UMCA Theological College graduate that would be the perfect fit for your church. If you are a business owner, you might find the perfect employee among those who are likewise members of the Alumni Association. If you simply want to bring attention to your new business, we can help you get the word out to those members who may need your services! In fact, you will even be able to advertise in The Heights to let others know about your church, ministry, or business. Eventually, we also have a directory for all participating members to make connecting with others easy.
We encourage all our alumni become active members of the Alumni Association. We hope you will earnestly and prayerfully consider joining one of the Partnership levels and join with other Alumni Association Members in supporting the vision of UMCA Theological College of “equipping Christian leaders to help those in need.” Together we can make a difference in our world for Christ, and see His purposes brought to pass!
