GREETINGS ITC ALUMNI AND WELCOME:
Like you, I am an alumnus and wherever I go, I meet and have conversation with persons, who within moments of sharing, find that we have either a mutual friend, relative, or associate who has either studied or simply applauds the wonderful ecumenical significance of ITC. This lets us know what critical and valuable resources we are as connectors to the past, present, and future of this grand Center for theological preparation. And so, first of all, I extend a personal invitation to you to take authority and pleasurable pride in "talking up ITC" - it is one of the easiest and most important ways to begin giving back to this great Center of learning that has propelled you and me along the journey of Christian leadership.
Tell others about the uniqueness of the learning experience - where persons across denominational divides come together girded by a common faith and collegial relationships that otherwise may not have been realized, but span the test of time and diversity.
Tell others about the ministries of ITC graduates that are making a difference in the local church and in the global community. Tell them about those who have risen in the hierarchy of their denominations, servant-leaders who are making a difference in how far and wide we reach to fulfill the Great Commission! Tell them that ITC graduates women and men who are great pastors and pulpiteers, advocates for the homeless, renowned musicologists, evangelists, counselors, authors, scholars and presidents in the academy, administrators and government officials, chaplains in the military and prison ministries; as well as ministries that go beyond the traditional and take the gospel message into the broader community through careers in faith-based website design, health and hospice programs, and environmental stewardship.
Secondly, I invite you to join me in giving back to ITC for all the marvelous things it has done and will continue to do with our help. I ask that you make an annual personal gift of whatever amount to the ITC Annual Fund. You can mail your gift to ITC at any time during the year, or go to the Ways to Give page on this website, where you can give as often and as much as you are able using your credit card. Then encourage an Annual ITC Day at your church and invite others to give toward the support of this tremendous work that for more than a half-century has been preparing leaders like you and me to serve with excellence!
Thank you in advance for joining me in this effort to give back to ITC.
May the Grace and Peace of God be with you!
