OTM Profile Workshop Update

Dear Upcoming Graduates,

You may remember that our scheduled OTM (Office of Transition Ministry) workshop was “snowed out” when GTS shut for a snow day on Friday, February 8.  That workshop was to be led by the Rev. Victoria (Tori) Duncan, Missioner for Transition Ministry.  Tori and I have been working with her, and GTS’, calendar to find some potential overlap, and have been unsuccessful.

Several of you during our recent CPG dinner event let me know that the workshop was no longer needed, as the majority of you have now completed, or were in the process of completing, your OTM Profiles.    Read more...

All About Depression: A Wellness Workshop Feb. 21

Whether depression hits you, a child or spouse, a friend or colleague, it affects the entire web of relationships.  The truly depressed person cannot be “cheered up” and may, without wishing to, drag others down into the doldrums.

In this informative seminar, participants will learn the difference between the “blues” and serious depression, a bio-chemical as well as emotional condition.  Interweave Founder and Executive Director Robert Corin Morris will speak from his own experience dealing with depression.  Read more...

Call for Resumes from Upcoming Grads!

Dear Upcoming Graduates,

 As you may be aware, last year GTS began compiling– and sending out to a very large and receptive audience– an e-book composed of resumes of our upcoming graduates, along with cover letters from the Dean and myself (as Director of Deployment).
We hope to continue this (new) tradition.  Please send me an electronic copy of your resume or curriculum vitae (CV) as a .pdf file before December 15 (including all your contact information within the resume/CV); that way we can compile this book and have it ready to go right after the New Year has come!  Read more...
