Update from CUE


CTS_Fall_2015_ClassChicago Theological Seminary (CTS) welcomed our largest entering class since our founding in 1855. 104 students from 22 faith traditions are learning, engaging and preparing to be Leaders for the Next. Leaders for Ferguson. Leaders who will speak to what is happening in Palestine and Israel. Leaders who will create spaces for change right here in Chicago where young men and women are killed on the streets and children aren’t safe on their own front porches. We need the leadership these seminarians will share with our world. With your support CTS continues to rigorously prepare men and women as religious leaders who will transform society toward greater justice and mercy. Thank you for supporting Leaders for the Next.

We encourage you to engage with our vibrant community. Join us in-person or via our live-stream to participate in upcoming CTS events. Join us via free live stream at www.ctschicago.edu/livestream.
