CAMPBELLSVILLE, Ky. – “Partners in an enduring fellowship.”

“You have forged partnerships during your years here that have resulted in growth in your spiritual journey as well as fruitfulness in ministry,” Hurtgen told the candidates. “As we talked before the formal ceremony began, all of you are excited about the next steps into new ministry positions, internships and further education.
“We are proud of you. We thank God for you.”
Dr. Shane Garrison, professor of educational ministries, provided the opening prayer. Dr. Scott Wigginton, professor of pastoral ministries and associate director of Marriage and Family Therapy, closed the ceremony in prayer.
