McCormick mourns the passing of Rev. Eunice Poethig who returned to God on May 25, 2018. She graduated in the class of 1975 and is survived by her husband, Rev. Richard “Dick” Poethig, a former faculty member.
This update is to both inform you on the Presidential Search Committees activities the past few weeks and to solicit your assistance at this critical point in the search process.
After gathering input from McCormick’s key constituencies and using that information to develop the seminary and presidential profiles, the search process is now in full swing. The position announcement has been sent to a variety of church and higher education publications and websites that advertise presidential positions and also is posted on the McCormick website.
McCormick Alums in Campus Ministry
By Alicia Leonardi
Outside of the world of theological education, many assume that seminaries only graduate traditional church pastors, but at McCormick a significant number are called to roads less traveled. Among them are campus ministers, whose job it is to offer a spiritual space for young adults often in the midst of spiritual and vocational transition.
