2018 Commencement: Phillips Theological Seminary awarded 12 diplomas at its commencement ceremony May 19, 2018 at First Christian Church in Tulsa, Okla.
A Pastor’s First Commandment: If you were on the receiving side of ministry, would you rather be served by a pastor who loves God but not people or who loves people and may not love or believe in God? Forced choice. Of course, most people who say “both!”
Lessons in Humility: President Gary Peluso-Verdend offers the following list where he is gathering lessons that he kind-of learned, that he should have learned, that he did not consistently put into practice over the past 32 years of congregational and seminary leadership.
Are There Too Many Seminaries?: President Gary Peluso-Verdend asks if there are too many seminaries in our time.
Four New Faculty Members Joining Phillips Theological Seminary: We are pleased to welcome Lisa D. Barnett, Arthur F. Carter, Jr., Warren Carter, and Annie A. Lockhart–Gilroy to Phillips Theological Seminary's faculty.
Label Bubbles: In his weekly blog, President Gary Peluso-Verdend writes, "It is nearly impossible for religious types, who have been labeling ourselves and others for centuries, to eschew labels. But, today, labeling is dominated by partisan politics. And this partisanship occludes rather than illuminates, shuts down rather than opens, conversation and debate."
Six Pieces of Leadership Advice: As he completes his 25th year in theological education and 37th year in ministry, President Gary Peluso-Verdend has been reflecting on what he has learned about leadership.
2018 Oklahoma United Methodist Alum Luncheon May 29 at Wesley UMC: Phillips Theological Seminary hosts the annual Phillips Alumni/ae luncheon May 29 during the Oklahoma United Methodist Annual Conference in Oklahoma City.
