Palmer seminarians are blessed by the support, challenge, and nurture of a richly diverse community and a pan-contextual approach to Christian theological education. The relationships formed here are special—set apart. These individual and communal relationships can be an enduring wellspring as seminarians become alumni serving, often isolated, in their call. Palmer desires to continue its role—fostering spiritual, relational, and theological growth—beyond graduation. 

Alumni Chaplain/Ministry Liaisons

“Ministry can be a lonely and challenging field, and I am so glad that Palmer and EU are expanding their ministry to help alleviate these burdens. It’s refreshing to know that Eastern continues to care and minister to us beyond when we stop paying for tuition. In my short time meeting with the Alumni Chaplain, I came away feeling refreshed, thought about, and loved; this kind of care goes a long way.”
