"Let us not grow weary in doing what is right, for we will reap at harvest-time, if we will not give up." Galatians 6:9


 "We began this journey doing good work here at ABSW. The journey has been short for some and long for others. We have come geographically near and far to attend...On this journey to the future,we have sought with passion, knowledge and understanding. ABSW has opened our eyes, our minds and our hearts to be responsible ministers promoting social justice and social change on behalf of God's people. Make no mistake about it; we have not been on this journey for our purposes, but for God's purposes to 'rightly divide the Word of Truth.'"


Patricia L. Colvin, Class of 2008



Alums of the American Baptist Seminary of the West are serving the Church in various capacities around the world. Their devotion to the Gospel and to service is evident through their stories as told. We want to encourage our alums to share their work and life stories with the ABSW family by completing and submitting the Alum Update form. Alumns can stay up to date with their classmates by reading the Alumni/ae section of Perspectives.


ABSW alums are lifelong learners. To help meet this desire for on going education, ABSW offers the Pastoral Leadership Conference and several elective courses for continuing education credit. For information on this year's conference and course offerings, please see the ABSW calendar
