Los Angeles, USA - North America Truth Theological Seminary held a Thanksgiving fund-raising concert to celebrate its 10th Year Anniversary since founding on Nov. 3.
The concert began with the choir performing the song “Alleluia”, and following was a four people orchestra playing a night melody, and it was welcomed by waves of applause from over 300 special guests. The total fund raised for this event was $12,000 USD and will be used towards the seminary’s development.
In the last ten years, NATTS went through many trials and difficulties, but by God’s abundant grace and guidance along the way, the seminary was able to develop exceptionally.
Dr. Chi-Chong Chang, Vice President of Administration, shared how God has guided NATTS in the 10th anniversary special edition program.
“In the last decade, the seminary started ETA courses, bachelor degree in literary studies (Biblical-studies), bachelor degree in theology, and bachelor degree in church music. The lecturers were all learned, possessed abundant practical experiences in service and application, allowing the students to benefit deeply.” Dr. Chang stated in the special edition program.
Until now, NATTS already has three graduating classes, among which five graduated with bachelor degree in Literary Studies (Biblical-studies), four received Church Music bachelor degree, and one received an ETA certificate.
The seminary has raised many exceptional ministers.
Dr. Chang further expressed that in response to the growing challenges of this generation, NATTS will continue to diligently aim for three grand goals. The first thing is to build the seminary under balance of a sound theological understanding and clear stance in faith, to become the mainstream evangelical Chinese Christian seminary that is based on the foundation of the truth.
Furthermore, in the urgent need to sent large number of ministers to train those in China, NATTS has a special burden to develop their talents and nurture them to become exceptional workers for God’s kingdom.
