Annual Fund Helps Support Many Ministries

At Christian Theological Seminary, we are committed to transforming theological education and many would say that our commitment is priceless. As we fulfill this pledge, we support many ministries that advance life-changing work through learning, counseling, worship, the arts, and fellowship. And, while quantifying the value of these ministries can be elusive, the practical needs we encounter on our journey are very real. That’s where the CTS Annual Fund makes a difference in helping us cover the real world costs associated with our ministry.

Gifts to the CTS Annual Fund cover a spectrum of needs. From keeping sidewalks salted during the winter months, to helping sustain campus treasures like the CTS Bookstore, Counseling Center and Sweeney Chapel. The Annual Fund supports the day-to-day operations that help sustain our commitment to transform theological education. For this reason, we practice stewardship that ensures donor gifts support our seminary in a way that serves the needs of diverse audiences including students, faculty, counseling center clients, Sweeney Chapel congregants, campus guests and the wider community.

Unlike funds earmarked for a specific purpose, gifts to the CTS Annual Fund enable the seminary to respond to unexpected needs (like this winter’s unusually harsh weather) as well as sustain ongoing maintenance and preservation functions. Of course, if you have a particular project you’d like to support, the Seminary Advancement team would be happy to discuss that possibility with you. Please contact Karen Horsman at khorsman@cts.edu or call (317)931-2315.
