This time of the year always bring a fullness of happiness and sadness to our CTU community. Thursday, May 16, we celebrated the 45th annual commencement for the 2013 class. We have prepared our graduates to go out into the world and do the work that God has called them to do. As stated in our mission, we prepare effective leaders for the Church, ready to witness to Christ’s good news of justice, love, and peace. We say now to our graduates, “Go now and become the overflowing spirit of God as a campus minister, DRE, or leader of the Church. Foremost, continue to be the engagers in ministry in the United States and around the world.”
The CTU community, along with the graduates, families, and friends, celebrated this vast achievement. The feelings that arise at this time of the year are bittersweet; there is the sadness that the relationships that you have built are changing. But we at CTU know that this part of the graduate’s journey is not the end but a continuation -- they are moving on to new beginnings and their future is blazing bright. We at CTU are grateful that we had them here with us. Congratulations to the class of 2013!
