Christian Theological Seminary is hosting its inaugural Day of Giving on Thursday, April 29, 2021. Join us on Facebook Live for special events throughout the day as we Unite around our common mission, Inspire the church and community leaders of tomorrow, and Invest in the future of CTS. #UniteInspireInvest

Funds raised on #CTSDayofGiving will support the CTS Annual Fund and other programs that sustain our mission to form disciples of Jesus Christ for church and community leadership to serve God’s transforming of the world. Each gift increases the capacity to offer an intellectually rigorous, spiritually formative, and emotionally supportive education to our students. “I am looking forward to our inaugural Day of Giving,” Vice President for Advancement Kristin Champa said. “CTS is well poised to remain a vibrant, responsive, and impactful institution far into the future, and the continued formation of ministers, leaders, and counselors depends on our community’s strong culture of giving.”

In addition to raising funds in support of the seminary, the #CTSDayofGiving will be a celebration of all aspects of the CTS community – our students, alumni, faculty staff and programs. This year’s goal is to engage at least 125 donors on the Day of Giving. No matter the size, every gift matters. Through the collective support of individuals across the CTS community we can achieve this goal.

Those wishing to give during the #CTSDayofGiving can do so through our website,

Looking ahead to the Day of Giving, April Ervin, Director of Alumni Relations and Annual Giving, said, “We approach the new year with a sustained belief in the potential and hope for all that is possible. We are encouraged by the commitment of our alumni and friends who continue to invest in the future of theological education.”
