Sioux Falls Seminary spent 2008-09 celebrating God’s faithfulness over the last 150 years. As we spotlighted our heritage, we constructed a new technology-enhanced, environmentally-responsible campus nine blocks from the old one. The year alternated between hard hat tours and special chapels with insights drawn from past leadership, such as August Rauschenbusch, the first German professor in 1858, or David Draewell or Chuck Hiatt or George A. Lang or Frank Veninga (and several others).

Class of 2012

In the fall, as we were celebrating what God has done, the economy suffered a serious recession that persists today. We were in the middle of construction during a time we could not have predicted. A priority to find donations for the new campus rose in importance. We took some preliminary steps to limit budget losses, a problem that continues as we live within our means.

As a consequence, staff, administration, and faculty pulled together in the spring to make up for the personnel losses and cuts. Student numbers stayed steady at around 251 total persons. God proved faithful again and again with our ministry.

Class of 2011

Mr. Al Nies Sioux Falls, SD

When the summer rolled around, we faced the move from the old campus to the new one. The library holdings moved in three shifts over a month’s time to new shelves in the Mikkelsen Library of Augustana College, immediately across the street from our new building. After an airing out period required for LEED certification, we began the move to the new facility. We officially moved in on July 7, although we were in process for weeks before that occupation date. We celebrated with an open house for the Sioux Falls community and an all-day alumni and friends reunion on July 13-14, followed with the Triennial of the NAB Conference in Winnipeg. What a wonderfully packed week that proved to be the capstone for our year. Although July 1, 2009, began a new fiscal year for us, that one week really was the culmination of years of planning and preparation—most of it in the 2008-09 fiscal year. I’m glad that we don’t move every year, but what a year of testimony for what God has done in our history and for what he is doing in our ministry now. We believe the Lord will continue to bless our future. It is an exciting time to see God work.

campaign report

Sioux Falls Seminary is making progress toward its largest campaign goal in school history. At the North American Baptist Triennial Conference this past summer, President Mike Hagan announced that the seminary is past the half-way mark toward the $10 million target. With more than

$5 million raised, the seminary is celebrating the generosity of many faithful alumni and friends. Seminary employees were the first contributors to the effort, pledging more than $350,000. Board members were second, committing $750,000.

Capital and Restricted Funds Ministry Impact Fund Endowment

The $10 million goal is aimed at helping fund the construction of the seminary’s new campus, providing significant scholarship support for students preparing for ministry, and enhancing annual operations. Called the From Here to There Campaign, the focus is on moving people from where they are to where God wants them to be. “We want to help people who are called by God,” says Foundation Executive Director Benjamin Lee. “It can be a real challenge for someone to take the steps of faith required to enter into full-time ministry. If successful, this campaign will help provide not only the tools that students need as they prepare, but it can also make the cost of the preparation more affordable.” Ultimately it is the churches and ministries that will benefit from this campaign, says Lee, because more well-trained Christian leaders will be out in the world making a difference for Christ.

churches help with funding a congregation’s efforts are inspiring others to give When Sioux Falls Seminary relocated from Rochester, New York, to Sioux Falls, South Dakota, in 1949, nearly every church in the North American Baptist Conference provided financial assistance to fund construction of the new building. As the seminary prepared for its move to a new campus in 2008-2009, one area church led the way for congregations to participate once again. An anonymous donor from First Baptist Church of George, Iowa, set forth a challenge to the rest of the congregation—agreeing to match every gift to the seminary construction project up to $20,000. Pastor Steve May (SFS alumnus and trustee), along with representatives from the seminary, presented the challenge to the congregation. When all the pledges were in, more than $33,000 was committed, exceeding the goal by $13,000. A total of $53,000 was given—enough to fund one professor’s office in the new building. As a result of the contributions of First Baptist Church of George, Iowa, the office and furnishings for Dr. W. Jay Moon, Professor of Intercultural Studies, were completely funded.
