On Saturday April 24th 2021, Tabor College hosted a graduation for the graduating students of 2019 and 2020 in lieu of last years cancelled graduation ceremony. Among the graduates were 9 students who were from Churches of Christ or connected with Churches of Christ through the Tabor Churches of Christ Study Centre. It is a great privilege as the Director of the Centre for nearly 6 years to assist so many students in setting up ministry placements with or churches so they can develop their ministry skills. I am grateful to the many churches who have journeyed with us and contributed to the development of these minister.
