Sheldon Jackson College—Transform or Close? (Part 5)

Dahlia of the day: Todd H.

What does God have in store for Sheldon Jackson College? It would be an embarrassment to the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) if SJ has to cease operations! We say that racial/ethnic ministries are important to the PCUSA. How do we back that up in real life? Mary Holmes College, with its long tradition of educating African American students, closed its doors in 2005. Mary Holmes was founded in 1892 by the Presbyterian Church’s Board of Missions. SJ was founded in 1878 and is the oldest institution of high learning in Alaska. Two down and not many more to go!!

It is time for SJ to transform once again. It is not time for SJ to close!!
