South America seminary celebrates 2020 graduates
Nazarene Theological Seminary of South America (STNS), headquartered in Quito, Ecuador, celebrated its 32nd graduation ceremony at the end of 2020. Thirty-three students from Ecuador, Colombia, and Venezuela received degrees.
The graduates were from the different theological education programs provided by the seminary, including Diploma in Youth Ministry, Bachelor of Theology, and Ministerial License in Theology.
The event was held virtually and was broadcast through social media because of the pandemic. Several leaders from the South America Region were a part of the event, including Regional Director Christian Sarmiento, Regional Education Coordinator Jorge Julca, and Geraldo Nunes, field strategy coordinator for the North Andean Field and rector of the seminary in Quito.
“STNS would like to congratulate our 2020 graduates, and we pray that your ministerial work will continue in difficult times, especially as the power of the Holy Spirit directs,” Nunes said. “STNS would also like to thank all those who participated virtually in this event, including pastors, church leaders, and other brothers and sisters who joined in the online celebration.”
