At Knox Theological Seminary, commencement is not so much a celebration of individual achievement as it is a wonderful reminder of what God has done, is doing, and will do in and through His people. We rejoice in God’s call on our graduates to declare and demonstrate the Gospel locally, nationally, and around the world.
The Knox Seminary class of 2017 reflects well the diversity across our entire student body as well as the ways in which God is using Knox to equip students for service in Christ’s Kingdom. Our graduates are men and women, young and old, black, white and Hispanic. Their ministries include reaching the homeless in San Francisco, planting churches in Ontario, leading Bible studies in Switzerland, and evangelizing large crowds in Pakistan, Korea, and Singapore.
What unites every student and employee is a commitment to the transforming truth of the Gospel. This was at the core of the commencement address by Dr. Jeff Jeremiah, the Stated Clerk of the Evangelical Presbyterian Church (EPC). In remembering God’s faithfulness and call to be Gospel bearers, his words were as challenging as they were encouraging. So too is the work before Knox Seminary in remaining faithful to this wonderful work of training ministry leaders to declare and demonstrate the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
