Church Planting In St. George - ALUMNI SPOTLIGHT

Church Planting In St. George - ALUMNI SPOTLIGHT
By: Jeff Schaefer, 2013 GraduateSince Graduating from the WEST Institute of Shepherds Theological Seminary more than 4 years ago I have taken what would probably be considered a non-traditional path for a seminary grad. I was convicted while going to The WEST to actually not pursue vocational ministry, but to pursue contentment and joy in God Himself. There was a subtle, yet significant shift in my mind about how I viewed the church and ministry. I had decided to love and serve the church with the gifts and opportunities available to me, while submitting to the leadership of godly men and trusting that God knows what He is doing with His church.

Broken Cisterns - A Year of Heart Study

Broken Cisterns - A Year of Heart Study
Broken Cisterns - A Year of Heart StudyBy: Hannah Shoults, 2017 GraduateWhen people ask me about the WEST Institute, my reply is often that it has been the best decision I have ever made, second only to accepting Christ as my Savior. In this year, was able to devote all of my time to studying and being changed by things that were eternal, lasting, and so valuable.

In going through this curriculum with my Heart Study group, God showed me very clearly that there were patterns of sin in my life that I had been ignoring—He...

SIX DAYS IN THE WEMINUCHE WILDERNESS - Part 2
By: Mary Martin"When I decided to go on this trip many people asked me why? I asked myself why? Why would you put yourself in so much discomfort? Why would you choose to do this?" - Part 1 Six Days in the Weminuche WildernessDay four in the Weminuche wilderness. Today we hiked to the bottom of Storm King. This was a harder day. It started out great. We were booking it, at least I felt like we were making really good time. I wasn't tired in the beginning, and I thought I finally had my legs under me in this whole backpacking thing. Then we started up steeper uphill trails. It was just a hard hike, and I wasn't in shape for it. During the hard points I remember thinking, the view better be worth it. Let me tell you, the view was always worth it. We camped at the bottom of a huge...

The Importance Of The Old Testament - Dr. Doug Bookman
Why is it important for Christians to know their Old Testament?  Dr. Doug Bookman, professor at Shepherds Theological Seminary, introduces this topic at The WEST Institute's 2013 CMC Conference. Dr. Bookman completed his M.Div. and Th.M. at Central Baptist Theological Seminary; and his Th.D. at Dallas Theological Seminary. After graduating from Pillsbury Baptist Bible College and Central Seminary, Dr. Bookman served as pastor/teacher in Rock Falls, Wisconsin. He joined the faculty of Pillsbury College in 1973, taught there for eleven years, and eventually served as Chairman of the Bible Department. Following his time as professor of Bible at Pillsbury, Dr. Bookman continued to teach at various Bible colleges as well as to teach and pastor at local churches.
