Leadership Giving Circle

STRENGTHEN THE SEMINARY BY JOINING THE LEADERSHIP GIVING CIRCLE

Our Leadership Circle of donors want the best for St. Nersess Armenian Seminary and the future of the Armenian Church in America. We appreciate how you help to motivate others, supply wisdom and experience, and provide the seminary with important financial support. Your moral and financial leadership empowers us to continue to strengthen our rich tradition of educating, engaging, and preparing leaders for service in the Armenian Church.

St. Nersess Seminary is important to the future of the Armenian Church in North America. The seminary provides a quality theological education that is firmly rooted in the faith and traditions of our Holy Armenian Church while fully utilizing the technological and financial resources of the 21st century. Through graduate-level education and spiritual formation, St. Nersess prepares priests for today’s Church and, as a seminary that welcomes women and men, it prepares non-ordained ministers for service in youth ministry and education.

St. Nersess can only continue this vital service to the Church in America through the generous support of people like you. Your Leadership Circle gift to St. Nersess is also a spiritual commitment. It will demonstrate how much you value quality education for the leaders of our Church and that you are committed to the future of the Armenian Church in America.
