On July 1, Milligan College President Dr. Bill Greer announced the merger of Emmanuel Christian Seminary into Milligan.
Since the summer of 2012, the college has worked with Emmanuel to help the seminary overcome significant financial issues and prepare for its eventual integration into Milligan. With its financial situation much improved and its viability secured, the merger will allow Emmanuel to continue its work of preparing men and women for effective ministry, while enabling Milligan to add important new programs to its curriculum.
Emmanuel is now part of Milligan’s School of Bible and Ministry, one of five schools comprising the college’s new academic structure, which also includes The Schools of Science and Allied Health, Arts and Humanities, Social Science and Education, and The William B. Greene Jr. School of Business and Technology.
“This is a historic day for Milligan and Emmanuel,” said Greer. “It is more important than ever for us to prepare faith-driven servant leaders; therefore, we welcome Emmanuel to join us on this mission that has guided Milligan over the past 150 years.”
