Our most-requested reprints of 2013

During the last year, In Trust has received many requests to reprint two articles by Barbara Wheeler --  “Sobering Figures Point to Overall Enrollment Decline” (co-written with Wheeler’s colleague Anthony Ruger) and “Pathways to Seminary: Where the Best Students Come From.”

Both are based on research conducted by Auburn Seminary using the latest data from the Association of Theological Schools. If you haven’t pored over these articles and discussed them with your board and senior staff, you’re missing out.

Click on the links above to read the articles. And 
if you are interested in hearing more, purchase the “Pathways to Seminary” webinar led by Wheeler and Ruger, with a response by Daniel Aleshire, and show it at your next board meeting. For more information on the webinar, click here.
