MB Seminary recognized its 2019 graduates during a commencement ceremony held at Central Heights Church in Abbotsford, BC on April 13. Six degrees were conferred by President Mark Wessner.
The ceremony was carried out with the four seminaries that work in partnership together to make up ACTS Seminaries in Langley, BC. Sixty degrees, diplomas, and certificates were awarded.
Jacquie Boschman, Master of Arts in Marriage and Family Therapy, is grateful for her time of studying at MB Seminary.
“The first thing that comes to mind when I think about my seminary experience is the personal growth that has happened because of being here. It’s been a really challenging experience for me and I feel like I’ve grown a lot. Growth and change can be really challenging, but when you come through it, you’re glad that you had the opportunity.”
