As HST continues to expand its efforts to make education available to more students through distance education, the library has kept pace by providing services to this our distance students. In the 2011-12 academic year, our librarians met nearly 400 student requests for materials. They posted 75 books in the mail, in addition to sending nearly 1,000 articles as PDF e-mail attachments, totaling over 20,000 pages. All this comes at a time when more materials are available online, both on the free web and through our paid subscriptions to databases like the ATLA Religion Database, PsychInfo, PsychArticles, and many others. All these digital services complement the physical collection of books on our Cherry Road campus. Overall, this means that HST students, even at a distance, have access to more materials than ever before.

Thursday, September 13, will be an action packed day on the HST campus.
CUDA Chapel and Reception
At 11:00, we’ll have a special chapel and reception in the library. Greg and Megan McKinzie are visiting from Peru, and we want to raise awareness about their work there, most notably CUDA.
CUDA is a non-governmental, non-profit, faith-based organization that empowers vulnerable communities in urban Peru to overcome cycles of poverty. Our vision of justice, wellbeing, and joy in the city leads us to promote physical, psychological, social, and spiritual wellbeing through projects in the areas of education, health, finance, and the environment.

If you’d like to visit the campus, but are unable to be here on the 13th, please get in touch with the admissions office here.

The Summer 2012 issue of The Bridge is now online! This issue highlights the theme for the 2012-2013 academic year, “Lord of All Nations”. Since Jesus is Lord of All Nations, His church is also made up of people from all nations.
This issue features sketches of multi-ethnic congregations and an overview of HST’s global context and teaching. We also acknowledge the class of 2012, and we honor Dean Emeritus Bill Flatt with an endowment to carry on his legacy of training Christian counselors.
