Long Island-area alums are invited to attend a festive and informative luncheon Thursday, October 25th @ 12:30 p.m.. This will be a time to gather in fellowship, share stories, and hear an update on our beloved Seminary.
Guest Presenter: Janet Okang, M.A. in Biblical Studies, ’18
Prior to Union, Jane was working in an administrative, pastoral and teaching capacity in the Bible College of Ghana. After completing her M.A. program at Union, she now helps as a part-time professor of New Testament in nondenominational colleges in West Africa (Ghana), training students who wish to go into pastoral ministry and missions. She has also had the opportunity to found a nonprofit organization that evangelizes children in rural areas of Ghana—children who have little or no exposure to the gospel and who suffer from difficult economic conditions. In addition to preaching the gospel twice a year, with the support of friends and volunteers, the group offers basic screenings, health care and provisions for some of the basic needs of the children (clothes, shoes, bags, books, etc.). Through mentorship, career guidance and training in craft skills, the organization helps the children develop academic skills and ensure that each child feels loved.
