Gifts that enhance our Mission
Minimum gifts ranging from $7,500 to $2.5 million make a significant annual impact on endowments for scholarships, faculty chairs, and supporting programs.
Aaron Gordon, Jerry and Harriet Dempsey Scholar
Born into a Jewish family, Aaron Gordon is preparing to serve as a Protestant Christian minister. His ethnic heritage makes him keenly aware that Christianity was first a Semitic religion with mainly Jewish adherents. “My personal experiences have helped me relate to the struggles of the early Jewish Christian church,” he says. Aaron was able to enroll at PTS thanks a generous merit scholarship. He hopes to pastor a church that ministers to displaced immigrants in this country and that is active in world mission and outreach beyond our borders.
Dale Allison, Errett M. Grable Professor of New Testament Exegesis and Early Christianity
Nobody likes to think more than Dale Allison does. His lengthy list of publications testifies to that fact. Dale is arguably the most nationally and internationally sought-after scholar of New Testament studies today. But to his writing, scholarship, and extensive thinking about Jesus, Dale has added service like Jesus’. He has regularly participated in an inner-city ministry that outfits homes for poor families, he regularly teaches Sunday School series in local churches and beyond, and he and his wife homeschooled their three children—all in addition to mentoring our very fortunate students at PTS.
Jen Haddox ’06, Associate Director of the World Mission Initiative
A regional body “standing in the gap” between PTS, the Worldwide Ministries Division of the PCUSA, and local congregations, WMI builds personal confidence for mission and responsible mission involvement. The goals of WMI consist in developing mission vision, nurturing missionary vocations, and cultivating missional congregations. Through WMI, nearly 400 PTS students have joined Seminary faculty and staff, along with dozens of Christians from across the nation, in short-term mission service all over the world for the broadening of their vision for global ministry.
