The Future of Ministry: Ministry has always come with challenges. The names of the challenges change with the generations. Regardless of the changes, according to President Gary Peluso-Verdend, face-to-face meetings powered by compassion and understanding will be necessary.

Build a Wall or Blessed to Be a Blessing?: Seminary President Gary Peluso-Verdend writes, "In using any biblical story, we must be as careful to say how the story differs from the American experience as we are to claim something from the Bible illumines the American experience."
Statement Regarding the Arrest of Ron Robinson: Phillips President addresses the arrest of a part-time instructor.
Finding Common Ground to Do the Hard Work: "Christianities have been infected with the same divisive spirit that diseases our age," writes President Gary Peluso-Verdend in his weekly blog.
The Boundaries of Being Inclusive: "Seminaries that deliberate on what is good and right using conversation and argument (rather than claims to special revelation and hierarchy) all struggle, in different ways and in our own contexts, with what inclusion, diversity, and justice mean," writes President Gary Peluso-Verdend in this week's blog.
Christians and the Social Contract: In President Gary Peluso-Verdend's weekly blog, he writes, "In Oklahoma, we have a weak social contract. Beyond obeying the laws of the land, and helping out in times of disaster, I don’t know what all is a part of Oklahoma’s social contract."
