Commencement Letter from Palmer Seminary Dean, Dr. David Bronkema

Dear Palmer Seminary Graduate:

It is with thanks to God that I join with you in celebrating your graduation from Palmer Theological Seminary of Eastern University. The faculty, staff, and I all take great joy in the way that God has blessed your faithful perseverance (James 1:4-5). All of us at Palmer are also grateful that you followed your call to become a part of this Seminary community, and for the way that you used your gifts and skills to nurture and build it up (1 Peter 4:10-11). Well done, good and faithful servants!

We look forward to seeing how Christ will continue to use you and your experience at Palmer as a holy vessel through which to accomplish God's special purposes (2 Timothy 2:21), as pointed to by our Seminary's motto of "the Whole Gospel, for the Whole World, through Whole Persons." We also look forward to having you continue to be an active part of our community, and to spreading the word of the good things that God is doing at Palmer.

May God bless you and your family and friends who played such an important part in your Seminary walk, and give you great joy in celebrating this achievement!

In Christ,
Dr. David Bronkema
