You have an important role to play in Virginia Seminary’s vision for the future. I believe in this mission, and I believe that you are part of it.

During this season of Advent, I know that many in our community are giving prayerful consideration to their gifts to VTS and the Church.  I appreciate that consideration, the generous intentions, and the process of listening to God’s call. I am personally so grateful for all that our alumni, friends, and associated institutions do for the Episcopal Church, and for the Kingdom of God.

Thank you for the prayers that guide and sustain us, the ideas and good work that inspire us, and for the gifts that allow us to fulfill our mission.  You are in our prayers as well, and we value the connections we have that allow us to serve God and the Church.  Every gift, large or small, to VTS is valued and appreciated.  Every gift has an impact, and together we are doing amazing work to prepare the future leaders of the Episcopal Church.

If you are considering a financial contribution to VTS before the end of the calendar year, the easiest way to give is online.  Or visit our website to learn more about other ways to give.  Any gift postmarked or received by December 31 will be acknowledged as a 2017 contribution.

Thank you for all you do.

The Very Rev. Ian S. Markham, Ph.D.
Dean and President
