Austin Seminary graduating senior Chelsea McCutchin has been selected to receive the 2018 Chidester Preaching Award. The $5000 prize is made possible by a gift from First Presbyterian Church in Malvern, Arkansas.
Austin Presbyterian Theological Seminary will hold commencement exercises on Sunday, May 20, at 2:30 p.m. at University Presbyterian Church, Austin. The class of 2018 consists of thirty-five students in four programs: the Master of Divinity, the Master of Arts, the Master of Arts in Ministry Practice, and the Doctor of Ministry. The Reverend Dr. Carlos Emilio Ham-Stanard (DMin'99) rector (president) of Seminario Evangélico de Teologia (SET) in Matanzas, Cuba, will deliver the Commencement Address.
This year students and others involved with the President's Commission on Diversity collaborated to create a "Beloved Community Covenant," to articulate the values, intentions, practical, and ideal commitments by which the community will agree to live, learn, and practice together. On April 5, students led a worship service to receive, reflect on, and pray about the covenant.
