The Newsletter for Chairs of Theological School Boards
Vol. 1 No. 10

The In Trust Center for Theological Schools has long been a creator and curator of valuable resources for board government in theological education. Here are a few free resources to consider if you're wondering:

The In Trust Center offers many other services for member schools like yours. (You can find out more here.) You can also ask us directly if you want to talk about an idea or ask a specific question. Just respond to the email. My team and I are praying for you and your success. And, don’t hesitate to let me or the team here know how we can help.

With gratitude for all you do in theological education,
