Church Relations

The fourth BU School of Theology Seminary Weeks is March – April 2019.

This is similar to a Seminary Sunday, but with a longer window. Here’s how it works: STH offers faculty and staff as resources to local churches during the month of March. Our scholars are available to preach, make presentations, and lead small group discussions on Sundays or other weekdays. 

We do not ask for an honorarium but we welcome the chance to invite the congregation to donate to Boston University School of Theology, either by including a note in the bulletin or displaying envelopes. 

If you have questions about this program or want to request a faculty member to come to your church, contact Jaclyn Jones.
