Greece and Turkey Trip Summer 2015

Steps of Paul and John | Greece and Turkey (Asia Minor)


greeceHouston Graduate School of Theology is hosting a trip to Greece and Turkey. This an educational tour to help facilitate understanding the context for the New Testament letters, Acts, and Revelation.

     One of the students from the previous HGST tour stated that the tour was the best educational trip he and his wife ever participated in. Several other students from the previous HGST tour noted that seeing the Word in context really made the Bible come alive for them.


     The Greek / Turkey Tour will have the same strong emphasis on Biblical archeological sites and early Christian historical sites as did the previous HGST tour.

Human Trafficking Awareness Big Dipper Dash 5K

Big Dipper Dash 5K ~

September is Human Trafficking Awareness Month. As a member of United Against Human Trafficking (formerly Houston Rescue and Restore Coalition), HGST will be having some important events during September.

One of the coalition’s biggest events is the Big Dipper Dash 5K, which is a fundraiser and awareness campaign for the organization. You can see the information on the event below.

I am hoping to have a large group from HGST participating in the run (obviously, I will not be running! Do I look like a runner?). Recent graduate, Tammy Isaac has agreed to “captain” the HGST team so that we can all be together. I am sending this to you so that all of you runners can put this on your calendar and register to run.

If you register to run, please let me know. ...
