Tyndale Seminary's FIRST TEAM

Faithful Intercessor's Regularly Supporting Tyndale - December 2022

Greetings from Tyndale Seminary!

The Advent Season is a special time when we focus  on celebrating Immanuel, God with us (Matt. 1:23),  as prophesied by Isaiah. He came in the flesh to  dwell among us. He revealed Himself to us to  rescue us from eternal death. Let us celebrate this  Christmas the ever-abiding presence of the Prince  of Peace among us. Let us all walk, encourage and  remind each other that our loving God is indeed “with us.”  We pray that 2023 will be an extraordinary year of walking with the Lord in community in a manner that brings glory to Him alone.

Please Pray for Our Students, Faculty and Staff

This fall term we have been able to experience life  as we knew it before the pandemic. It was so  refreshing to be able to do things together again:  graduation, convocation, student trips, in-person  classes, Thanksgiving dinner, etc. Please pray that  our students finish their exam period well and that  they are refreshed with needed rest during the  upcoming two-week Christmas break. Pray also for  our faculty as they enter a busy season of grading  papers and conducting exams, and our staff as they  make sure all is in place for the close of the  calendar year and the beginning of the  winter/spring terms.  

Tyndale Friends’ Dinner

On October 8, we organized a Tyndale Friend’s  Dinner. The invitation went out to alumni, donors,  and Dutch board members. Three Tyndale  graduates were able to share how their education  and overall experience at Tyndale impacted their  ministry. One current student talked about the  importance of the theological education she is  receiving at Tyndale and how she plans to share it  with others in her own context in Mongolia after she graduates.  

Africa & Americas Emphasis Week

We celebrated a special Africa & Americas Emphasis Week. Students (and spouses) from Africa and the Americas hosted a chapel service that highlighted various countries in Africa and the
Americas. The week helped all of us gain greater  insight into the lives of our international and multicultural student body, their homelands, cultures, and families.

Please Pray for a New President

The presidential search committee of the Tyndale Board of Directors continues to  interview possible candidates for Tyndale’s new president. Please pray for discernment, insight, and  wisdom for the search committee members. Also pray that the right person will respond to God’s call for this very important position. 

Matching Gift Campaign

We are excited to let you know about the success  of the matching gift campaign, “Celebrate Our Graduates,” which was launched on 15 September.  One of our most faithful donors offered to match every gift given between 15 September and 15 December 2022, up to $100,000. We are very  close to reaching the set amount. Our graduates are making a significant impact around the globe for  the kingdom of God. This campaign will help us  continue training and discipling more Christian leaders. Your gift will double in value. Would you  consider giving towards this goal?

Pray for the Tyndale Christmas Outreach

The students are planning the annual Christmas  neighborhood outreach for 16 December. At that  time, students and staff will be walking around our  village singing to families and distributing  Christian materials. Please pray for our neighbors  that they would not only enjoy the caroling that  take place, but would receive our gifts of the Good  News during this season.

We thank all our First Team members for their  prayers for the school. We ask that you continue to  pray that the Lord enables many to provide gifts  during this Advent Season. 

Please also note that for those who purchase books and other items via Amazon, you can designate Tyndale to receive a small stipend through AmazonSmile: https://smile.amazon.com/ch/65-0154723
