Rev. Kevin Koslowsky (M.Div. '07): "In October I was installed as the Senior Pastor of Faith Presbyterian Church (PCA) in Wilmington, DE. I have served on the pastoral staff since 2002 which included my entire time as a part-time Westminster student (M.Div. 2007). My previous ministry responsibilities with the church involved oversight of youth and children's ministries as a Director of Youth & Children's Ministries (2002-2006), Assistant Pastor (2006-2007), and Associate Pastor (2007-2012). Upon the retirement of our long-tenured senior pastor (1987-2012) I was called by the congregation to be Senior Pastor. I am thankful for continuing ministry in a congregation I love as I transition into a new role of leadership." http://www.faithwilmington.com/calendar/announcements/leadership-announcement

Meet a Current Student
Eric Bowman, M.Div.
Originally from Pittsburgh, Eric was a member of the PCUSA for most of his life and studied for one year at another seminary before moving to Philadelphia. When asked what prompted him to make the move, he said, “I remember there was one incident where I was in a systematics class, and the professor was talking about the merits of icon worship, and I thought – 'That’s not even Reformed!'”
For Every Culture and for Every Generation

Book of the Month
Westminster alumnus and OPC minister, Rev. Neil Tolsma (M.Div. '65) has recently published a new book on God's love.
Listen to an interview with Rev. Tolsma about his book on Reformed Forum.
Publisher's Description: Many people search all their lives for true love. But before we can find that real, transforming love we all long for and were created by God to need, we must first understand what true love is.
This Is Love directs us to the best authority on the topic, through the example of God himself. Each chapter highlights a significant aspect of God's love as demonstrated in a different period of biblical history and ends with study questions to help us to further our understanding. After learning the character of divine love, we then see how God's love is revealed in our own lives - especially by the love we show to others.
This offer is exclusively for Westminster alumni, and may be used one time between now and the end of December.
