Courses, upcoming events, jobs & tickets to Promise Keepers Canada
Welcome to Tyndale Alumni News. We are having a wonderful summer at Tyndale and we are enjoying the early days of serving the Alumni family.
This issue is full of resources, opportunities and updates for the Tyndale family. Here are a few things we are working on:
The library has scanned over 600 Alumni related items during the Summer. These include yearbooks, newsletters and graduation programs. See if your yearbook is available.
Change is in the air and this is the last newsletter you will receive in this format. We are working on a new design and platform that will better serve our Alumni family.
Could you give an hour a week to help build our Alumni vision? We would be so pleased if you would share your gifts and skills to build the Tyndale dream. Wherever you live in Canada or around the world, we need your help to build up the Alumni family. Please alumni [at] tyndale [dot] ca (contact us) and we will share our dreams and plans.

Continuing with your Graduate Diploma at Tyndale
This fall we are offering some excellent courses:
• A "two-weekend" course with Dr. Howard Snyder, "Renewing the Church for Mission" (Oct 13-15; Nov 17-19)
• Six interactive on-line courses;
• Six courses in an intensive, 5-day format during the first full week of January (see our Intersession webpage )
As you prepare for another year of ministry, perhaps you're also considering further training to help you to grow as a Christian leader. Highlights of some of our upcoming Youth Ministry courses include:
• Fall 2011: "YMIN 0796 Counselling Adolescents and their Families," with Wayne Saynor (there is still time to register)
• Winter 2011: "YMIN 0592 Foundations of Ministry with Youth," with Dr. David Overholt
• Winter 2011: "YMIN 0781 Youth and Family Ministry in the Immigrant Church," with Dr. Vincent Poon
At Tyndale we have many study options. You can audit a course, register as an occasional student or work towards a Youth and Family Ministry diploma or degree. For more information check out the Youth and Family Ministry page.
Another unique Tyndale cohort-modular program runs exclusively on Monday evenings and allows students to complete an Master of Theological Studies degree in less than three years as part of a supportive, learning community. Check out the MTS Modular Program.
