Help Plan a Seminar for First Year Graduates - April 3

Monday, April 3
5:00 p.m. in the Small Dining Room

As part of the expanding distance learning program at ANTS we'll be
offering a free seminar for first-year graduates next year. Current
plans are for us to be on-line one week a month with topics of interest
and concern to those entering a new ministry. It will be a great way to
stay connected with friends and the Hill, as well explore some issues of
emerging importance for your ministry.

Jeff Jones, Director of Distance Learning and coordinator of the
seminar, would like to meet with seniors who are interested in
discussing both the format and topics. He's reserved the small dining
beginning at 5:00 on Monday, April 3.

If you'd like to join in this discussion please e-mail him at
jjones@ants.edu to let him know you're coming. All students who are
graduating in May are invited.

Thanks,
Jeff
