Each year at Central's Commencement service we celebrate the hard work our students have done to prepare for the service to which God has called them. We also recognize the support they receive from family and friends. We acknowledge that all of our students are wonderful servants of God and appreciate that they have shared a part of their journey with us. In addition, Central faculty have a practice of recognizing those who have excelled in applying their giftedness – either in classes or in their current ministry settings – during their seminary journeys.
Meet this year's recipients, which are drawn from both our Korean speaking, as well as our English speaking students:

Central is doing good work preparing students like these for ministry, work that is made possible by people like you. We give them personal attention, we have a global reach, we think and teach horizonally. Over half of our financial support comes from donors who join our mission. Thank you for your support. Join us in celebration of God's gracefully activity in our midst. Help us create this opportunity for more students called by God.
