Michigan pastors graduate from Southern Seminary

PLYMOUTH, MI – I would like to send our congratulations to these fine students who graduated from The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, KY. I know that God is going to use them mightily in furthering the Kingdom of Christ. We are so thankful for the continuing education of our leaders here in Michigan. May God bless them and use them in great ways to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ in their communities, state and around the world.
