A thread running throughThe Bridge, Winter 2016 is honoring those to whom we owe honor.
HST honors:

  • Missionaries. Read David Allen’s reflections on the sabbatical semester he and his family enjoyed at HST.
  • Preachers. Dr. Allen Black wrote about the “extraordinarily difficult task” preachers have serving as a local theologian.
  • Drs. Evertt and Ileene Huffard. HST honored the Huffards at the 2015 Leadership Council Dinner for their lives of global service to the kingdom.

All of this as well as news and updates from students, faculty, and staff, in the Winter 2016 issue of The Bridge.

Black to Serve as Dean

HST exists to train Christian leaders for the work of ministry.

You'll find all of this, along with other campus news and updates, in the Spring 2015 issue of The Bridge.
