Graduation weekend has arrived!
Today we officially launch into graduation events at Heritage. We’ve prayed and prepared. Now we are anticipating a wonderful weekend of consecration and celebration.
Tonight is our Grad Banquet, where grads from the college and seminary are joined by family and friends for a memorable evening. After a buffet dinner, we will hear from valedictorian speakers (one for the college and one for the seminary). Our academic dean will hand out a number of awards to graduates who excelled during their time at Heritage. We’ll close the evening with a special time of consecration and commissioning.
Tomorrow (Saturday, April 29th) is Graduation Day. This year we have 66 students graduating from the college and seminary–one of our largest groups ever. Dr. Rick Buck, lead pastor at Emmanual Baptist Church in Barrie will be our guest speaker. We’ll also hear from some of the talented musicians who have trained at Heritage.
On Monday evening and early Tuesday morning, students who are part of our SERVE Experience will fly out of Toronto for their summer missions trips. Half the group is headed to Japan; the others will fly south to Brazil.
Please pray that the Lord will be honoured in our graduation ceremonies. Also, join me in praying that each Heritage graduate would be faithful and fruitful servants of Christ and His Church. We evaluate our effectiveness as a school by the value we bring to the churches.
Thank you for being part of our prayer team throughout this school year. The Lord answered so many of our petitions and worked in powerful ways in many lives!
