Tonight we celebrated our 2017 graduates and their families with a wonderful banquet. Tyler (MAC’18 student) did a great job as emcee, and Kim and Jordan (and all our volunteers) did a stellar job planning the catered dinner.
Leigh Swanson delivered the address for the evening and blessed us with some “advice from mom” about heading into ministry. (You can listen to it here: https://soundcloud.com/rtsorlando/leigh-swanson-senior-banquet-address-2017). In addition, graduates Ben Kandt, Gaye Butler, and Billy Tyson addressed the audience with their reflections on their time at RTS.
Graduates Jessi Haring and Chris Brearly unveiled the class banner, featuring quotations from Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings and 1 Corinthians 13.
