Welcome back to McCormick Seminary!
At a recent gathering of alums, when folks were asked to share one word that describes their time at McCormick, the number one word that came up was "community." It can be hard to be living in the diaspora, but we're here to help keep that spirit of community as strong as we can. Explore the Alum web pages often, as we update our alum news . Or, check out the blogs  – some of which might be helpful for coming up with worship or ministry ideas – written by some of our phenomenal alums. If you're on Facebook, you'll want to friend me  to stay updated on what's happening with alum activities and McCormick news. While you're at it, you might also want to "like" the McCormick Seminary  Facebook page.
We're trying to connect with folks in as many ways as possible (print, web, telepathy) and because McCormick alums are constantly doing something interesting, it can be hard to keep up with you so that you can stay informed! So please, when you move, change email addresses or fail to pay that change fee to your cell phone provider to keep your number – if there is anything to remember – remember this: KEEP US UPDATED ! We want to know where to send our latest news. (And, occasionally, ask for money – just keeping it real!)
In addition to staying connected, McCormick wants to keep supporting you. Be sure to check out our Alum Benefits page  to see some of the benefits of being a MTS alum. If you're looking for the next step, you might want to check out our job board . Or, if you want time to grow and learn, consider the continuing education  resources and events at McCormick. One of the newest ways that we are trying to connect with you is through regional gatherings of alums we like to call McCormick in Motion . Take a look at the webpage  and see if we are coming to a city near you!
We want to do our best to serve you as you serve in your varied ministries. Please visit us regularly! With more than 5,400 McCormick alums throughout the world, your circle of friends is likely to grow!
