Did You Know . . . ?

  • Bethany's Alumni/ae Association includes persons who are no longer enrolled as students and who have completed at least a year's worth of credits in a Bethany Seminary degree or training program. (This includes graduate, undergraduate, and non-degree program alumni/ae from Bethany Bible School, Bethany Biblical Seminary, Bethany Training School, the School of Sacred Music, Bethany Theological Seminary, and Brethren Academy for Ministerial Leadership Programs.)
  • Alumni/ae may enroll in Bethany's graduate or academy classes for continuing education. The Brethren Academy for Ministerial Leadership administrates continuing education and awards Continuing Education Units (CEUs). Alums who have earned a graduate-level degree may take graduate courses for credit by registering as occasional students. Application and enrollment fees are waived for alumni/ae.
  • Alums have the opportunity each year to elect persons to Bethany's Alumni/ae Coordinating Council. Three persons serve staggered three-year terms. They plan alumni/ae events and serve as an advisory board to the Institutional Advancement Staff.

Monica Rice
Master of Arts

MonicaIt is no small task to choose a topic that will hold enough interest to devote countless hours and hundreds of pages of reading and writing. I have found that topic in researching the tradition of the prayer covering in the Church of the Brethren. This practice piqued my curiosity because of the lack of available writing and discussion about it. For instance, the last time that Annual Meeting/Conference addressed the covering was 1925!
