Inauguration Held for Eastern Seaboard Campus in Connecticut
JAN 17, 2020 (JOHNSONVILLE, Conn.) — In its 45th year of educating future ministers, the Iglesia Ni Cristo (Church Of Christ) School For Ministers (SFM) continued its global expansion Jan. 17, with the inauguration of its school extension in Johnsonville, East Haddam, Conn.
The Johnsonville Village building seated next to the property’s historic Milldam was recently renovated and is now home to the new INC SFM campus. What many once recognized as a cornerstone to East Haddam will now be the beacon for education of ministerial students in the region. Here, hundreds gathered to witness the inauguration led by INC General Auditor Brother Glicerio B. Santos Jr.
Twenty one students from states across the Northeastern Seaboard will study this year at the Johnsonville campus to earn their Bachelor of Pastoral Studies and Evangelism (BPSE).
“We have seen the able-bodied and qualified youth members of the Church enter the holy ministry. They answered the call of Our Executive Minister, Brother Eduardo V. Manalo, because of the great need of the Church Of Christ for ministers all over the world,” said Brother Emiliano C. Magtuto Jr., Director of School For Ministers.
The INC School For Ministers is centered in the Philippines, but there are now nine overseas extensions: Washington D.C.; Sacramento, Cali; Corpus Christi, Texas; Ladybrand, South Africa; London, United Kingdom; Rome, Italy; Toronto, Canada; Sydney, Australia; and now in Johnsonville, Conn.
