True Family Values Outreach
The entire Seminary community is currently working to bring ministers to a series of True Family Values Conferences. Faculty, staff and students have been divided into outreach teams under the direction of President Shimmyo who is now the Pastor of the Red Hook Church. President Shimmyo has also accepted the position of State Leader for Upstate New York at the request of Continental Director Rev. Joong Hyun Pak. 
Reverend Tom Bowers is combining his work as Library Director with his many responsibilities as assistant pastor and acting state leader in the absence of President Shimmyo. 
Dr. Dietrich Seidel, assistant professor of theology, is organizing prayer breakfasts, a pot-luck dinner and a coffee hour for local ministers. Currently, ministers are being invited to a series of weekly conferences in the Pocono mountains in Pennsylvania. 
Divinity student Tony Devine recently returned from a visit to Siberia where he assisted at a pre-Blessing ceremony for 200 couples. All of this, of course, is preparation for the 3.6 million couple Blessing later this year.
