Despite what the weather may indicate, this is Spring Visit Weekend where Virginia Theological Seminary welcomes prospective students. Every year around this time we throw open our doors and our hearts to those who are exploring the call to prepare for more intentional service to the Church and God’s world.
There are numerous events and activities prepared to introduce you to the Seminary, its stellar faculty, community of students, and the programs of study offered. Attend a sample class, join us in worship at the Immanuel Chapel, walk our historical grounds and imagine yourself joining those who have walked here over the past 200 years as they prepared for lives of service to God.
This year 22 Dioceses will be represented by the 28 prospective students and their guests. Some are coming from around the corner in Washington, DC. Others are traveling from Texas, Colorado, Minnesota, Massachusetts, and places in between. These men and women come from many different walks in life: professors, healthcare workers, bankers, social workers, and other occupations. Some of you will like what you see and hear God’s affirmation you’ve come to the right place. But in any case, we are eager to help you discover God’s next step for you.
The Very Rev. Ian S. Markham, Ph.D. Dean and President
