Response to GTS Students from Board of Trustees Chairman, Bishop Mark Sisk

Dear Students, Thank you for your insightful, caring, and helpful letter to the board. Your unique role in being on campus and hearing first hand from the various parties involved, in a situation which grieves us all deeply, is instructive. We thank you for your heartfelt words.

As stated in our letter of September 30th, our primary concern is all of you who put your faith in us and chose to attend General Seminary. We seek to foster its survival and thriving in a new era for the changing church in a changing world.

Please be assured that your Executive Committee is working non-stop behind the scenes in an effort to move as swiftly as possible toward reconciliation of the current crisis, the severity of which we first became aware just a few days prior to you. As the Body of Christ we can do no less.

Our prayers and genuine concern are with each and every one of you. Thank you for your witness and ministry.

Faithfully, Bishop Mark Sisk
