Students at the Barrytown College of the Unification Theological Seminary (UTS) got a face-to-face meeting with Dr. Michael Balcomb and Dr. Hugh Spurgin on Thursday, March 19, and learned of some sobering realities and some good news, too.

Two Unification pastors, both working moms, are newly enrolled as students in the Doctorate in Ministry degree program at UTS, in which students meet in Barrytown for 2 weeks in August and 2 weeks in February, and do the rest of their coursework at home.

Paul StuppleMr. Paul Stupple has been appointed as Chief Operations Officer. Paul is a native of the mid-Hudson Valley, having grown up in Milton, near Poughkeepsie. His career, however, has taken him everywhere but this area, including Cairo, Egypt, where he served for 12 years in educational administration as well as with the Middle East Times, Moscow, where he was program coordinator for the International Educational Foundation, and Suriname and Costa Rica, where he with his wife Barbara established missionary churches.

Mr. Stupple will oversee financial and facilities management, and guide the development of IT support, conference services and business planning. His ability to speak in six languages will assist his service to UTS’s international student body.
