What happens in this coming year is not left to chance. God is in charge, and he promises to stay close: "The LORD your God will be with you wherever you go." Many years later, the Lord Jesus made the same promise when he said, "I am with you always" (Matthew 28:20). That's the reason we can wish each other a "Happy New Year!" — Arthur Schoonveld
We at Greenville Seminary hold fast to the confession of our hope in the Lord our Covenant God, who keeps His promises to His people. Standing on this solid ground, we both wish our partners in ministry a Happy New Year and pray confidently that the God we worship together will bless you in all your endeavors in 2017. Please pray for us as well, that we may remain faithful this year in all of our instruction and in our commitment to the Scriptures. Pray that we will be able to welcome many new students, that we will have the resources necessary to equip our students and that our impact on the church and the world will grow stronger in 2017.
