Dr. Joel Scandrett at the 2015 Ancient Evangelical Future ConferenceAMBRIDGE, PA – November 20, 2015  – Trinity School for Ministry is delighted to announce a recent gift of $1.5 Million from the Hansen Foundation of Sewickley, PA to support the work of the seminary’s Robert E. Webber Center for an Ancient Evangelical Future. This generous gift will go towards building an endowment for the Webber Center to help sustain its work for many years to come.

“Embracing the vision the leaders at Trinity have for the Robert E. Webber Center means more to us than just nodding our heads,” remarked Ms. Gretchen Hansen, a representative from the foundation. “Their vision for eternity and providing resources and direction for developing leaders is exciting and rewarding. The Foundation’s sharing God’s abundance is merely a response to the Holy Spirit and giving what is His in the first, middle and always place.”

“The Hansen Foundation’s commitment to promote Christian education throughout the Pittsburgh region is an excellent match with the Webber Center’s mission to provide high-quality parish resources for Christian formation and discipleship” said the Rev. Dr. Joel Scandrett, Director of the Webber Center. “I am profoundly grateful to God and the Hansen Foundation for this immensely generous gift.”

This gift from the Hansen Foundation fits in with one of the seminary’s major initiatives: providing churches with teaching resources which are produced by the Webber Center and published through Whitchurch Publishing, the seminary’s publishing arm.

“We see this gift as a tremendous answer to prayer” said the Very Rev. Dr. Justyn Terry, Trinity’s Dean and President. “We are so thankful to the Hansen foundation for their desire to build the kingdom of God with the resources the Lord has blessed them with.”

Trinity School for Ministry is an evangelical seminary in the Anglican tradition. Begun in 1976, the seminary has trained more than 1,000 graduates and many others who serve in ministries all over the world. As a global center for Christian formation, Trinity continues to produce outstanding leaders who can plant, renew, and grow churches that make disciples of Jesus Christ.
