Emmanuel’s Name to Change June 1

by | 6 May, 2011 | 0 comments

Emmanuel School of Religion will exist for just a few more weeks””on June 1 it will become Emmanuel Christian Seminary.

President Michael Sweeney writes that the ESR name no longer communicates effectively with today”s society.

“Fifty years ago, a “˜school of religion” was essentially the same as a “˜divinity school,” that is, a seminary-like institution attached to a university, with, perhaps, a somewhat broader curriculum than the average seminary,” he says. “[But] the name that worked so well in the past is now creating some confusion.”

The school has completed the official documentation with the state and accrediting agencies and will change its Web site to www.ecs.edu.
