Pittsburgh Theological Seminary welcomes back the scholars from the 2007 The Rev. Dr. Roy F. Miller, Ph.D., and Mrs. Florence Lantz Miller Summer Youth Institute Jan. 7-11 for a reunion.

The weekend is ideal for reuniting, catching up with faculty, and digging into theology more. Dr. Dale Allison, Errett M. Grable Professor of New Testament Exegesis and Early Christianity, will give a lecture Friday afternoon. SYI alums can also attend a Greek or Hebrew class Friday morning. Afterward, they are will join prospective students and faculty during the Epiphany Event for workshops including admissions and financial aid seminars. While on campus, the group also worships together.

“PTS is a place they can always come home to and that is important for these young leaders in the church to have reaffirmed,” said Director of SYI Ellie Johns ’99. “For some alums, the reunion enables them to begin the seminary search process while for others it is simply a rich experience to connect with others who like to ask big questions of faith.”

The Miller Summer Youth Institute at Pittsburgh Theological Seminary provides a Christian community challenging youth to grow in faith and gain a deeper understanding of the Gospel and its implications for today’s world. For two weeks each July high school scholars from across the United States study the Bible with Pittsburgh Seminary faculty, shadow local pastors, engage in mission with the community, and worship, reflect, and pray daily.
