Curtain falls on an eventful year – 161st Academic year closes at Moore
Today was ‘Final Friday’ at Moore. It has been a big College year of milestones in which so much has happened, including the celebration of the 500th anniversary of the Reformation with the College hosting 9 Reformation events. Not to mention the addition of new faculty, new students and new staff bringing change to this living and learning community.
Other highlights include moving into and using the new main building and its official opening, the new state-of-the-art library, the re-registration of the College as a self-accrediting higher education provider, high profile visiting guests and the launch of a new College website. The Governing Board met last night for its final meeting of 2017 bringing its official business for the year to a close.
See our Annual Report 2017 to see more news from the past year. A highlight of events held to mark the end of the year, was today’s end of year chapel followed by a community lunch, where many families from the College were present along with faculty, staff and students. Also in attendance was the newly appointed President of Oak Hill College, London, Reverend Jonathan Juckes. The end of year sermon was given by our Principal, Dr Mark Thompson, on Psalm 100.
Dr Thompson also delivered an address at the Graduates’ Dinner 2017 held last night for our exiting students which included addresses by students representing the graduating students, Archie Poulos speaking on behalf of the Faculty, and then the Principal’s address.
You can listen to Mark’s sermon at this morning’s end of year Chapel here.
The College is thankful to God for another year and the Lord’s rich blessings on the faculty, staff and our wonderful student body and their families and friends. Please pray for the College and its people as we continue to equip men and women for a lifetime of gospel mission and ministry. Please pray for our graduating students as they leave us going out to serve God in the harvest field in whatever context they find themselves.
For what we preach is not ourselves, but Jesus Christ as Lord, and ourselves as your servants for Jesus’ sake.
