Fall 2010 New Student Orientation

This week is orientation week here at Northwest / ACTS Seminaries.

At the New Student Orientation day on Wednesday we had 75 men and women participate. It was a great day of seeing new faces, helping new students find their bearings, enjoying again the story of ACTS Seminaries and sensing among these new students a refreshing inquisitiveness, anticipation and energy. As the various faculty and staff made their presentations to these new students I was reminded again of what an amazing Kingdom enterprise we are part of here at ACTS – five evangelical denominations collaborating to provide current and future leaders with tools that will equip them to be better prepared for the various ministries to which God has called them. I think this year is shaping up to be an exciting adventure.  Here are a few more photos from orientation day.
