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.

Jody Gunn
(MDiv Connections)

JodyIn the summer of 2006, I made a pact with a high school friend to make our fortieth decade significant. My goal was to complete my Master of Divinity degree before I turned fifty years old. Inside I asked myself and God, "How is this was going to be possible?" Eventually, I was willing to be open to it. My life seemed crazy enough without adding seminary to the mix. I am married to Eric and have two children 15 and 10, so I run a household. I serve a church half time and find many opportunities to volunteer in our community. In spite of the busyness of my life I said "Yes!" to Bethany because I really was at a point in my life where it made sense.
