President Pipa Extends GPTS Influence Internationally

The summer of 2015 has provided occasion for an extensive "world tour" for Greenville Seminary President Joseph A. Pipa Jr. as he journeys in Asia, Europe and Africa developing the influence of GPTS and its ministry around the globe.

A journal of his travels in June and July, along with his wife Sissy, can be viewed here. Having traveled to Korea earlier in the year, Dr. Pipa has been teaching, preaching and speaking at conferences in Singapore, Italy and England. He is currently in South Africa for more teaching and liaison with Greenville Seminary's affiliate program at John Wycliffe Theological College there. Most stops have included contacts and ministry with GPTS alumni serving in these nations. GPTS has students on sister campuses in England and South Africa. The GPTS extension program in England is located in Gateshead in the northeast area of the country. GPTS adjunct faculty member William Schweitzer pastors a church there.

Pray that God will richly bless this international outreach to the end that the historic faith of the Reformation will be re-established and reinforced around the globe.
