On Tuesday May 7, 2019, the staff, trustees and friends of OMSC celebrated the resident class of 2018 – 2019 with a certificate ceremony and luncheon at the Overseas Ministries Study Center in New Haven, CT. We have been honored to get to know these wonderful scholars, pastors, missionaries and artists that have studied and fellowshipped with us the past year. They have inspired us and we wish our class of 2019 safe travels and many blessings in their ministries as they return to their home communities around the world this summer.
Dr. Thomas Hastings, OMSC Executive Director, gave a heart-felt and beautiful message and led us in prayer at the ceremony. We closed the ceremony with the classic hymn written by William Howard Doane (whose daughters honored by founding OMSC in 1922 as a place of rest, renewal and empowerment for missionaries from around the world), "To God be the Glory.". After the ceremony we had a wonderful time of fellowship and celebration at a luncheon hosted by staff in our main building.
