The 79th General Convention of The Episcopal Church was held in Austin, TX in July 2018. General Seminary was well-represented and active in all operations. Current student Jennifer Allen ‘20, served on the House of Deputies Committee on Sexual Violence and Exploitation.
General is thrilled to welcome the Rev. Dr. Julie Faith Parker to our faculty as Associate Professor of Biblical Studies. She comes most recently from teaching the Old Testament at Trinity Lutheran Seminary in Columbus, Ohio. However, her extensive education has spanned a considerable range of places, from upstate New York (B.A., Hamilton College) to Paris (studying art history) to Manhattan (M.Div., Union Theological Seminary) to Central America (studying liberation theology) to Connecticut (S.T.M., Ph.D., Yale University), and now to Chelsea Square.

Many current students and Alum of General Seminary, as well as friends, old and new, did just that as they visited the booth for their ‘ Welcome home’ conversations and ‘take away’ gifts for all the senses.
