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.

Robin Graham, Director of Alumni Relations and Development, and Henry Christopher, Director of Recruitment and Admissions, spent a week on the road, visiting churches in Montana, northern California, Oregon and Washington.

The trip was entitled, "How UTS Can Serve." They built meaningful relationsip with the church leaders, members and alumni. The topic of conversation everywhere they went was, how can UTS serve your needs as you work to fulfill God's will in America.

They held nightly meetings as well as visits with individuals and families, to better understand the reality of the church. They explored together the areas in which UTS resources can be mobilized to serve you.

To all those family members who hosted and conversed with them, our gratitude goes out.
