Jimmy Lin first set foot on American soil to attend Westminster Theological Seminary in 1980. Over 30 years later, Rev. Lin is set to retire from Back to God Ministries International, a ministry that has reached people worldwide through radio, online, and mobile media since 1939. We recently spoke with Rev. Lin to talk about his time at Westminster, his ministry, and his heart for his home country, China.
What ways can a donor help the seminary? Here is one unique story.
In the summer of 2014, Westminster was given a generous gift with a specific purpose in mind: make the campus more energy-efficient. After several months of work, both on Machen Hall and the Carriage House, the seminary is now poised to save a significant amount on its energy bill this winter.
Join us for Spring semester Convocation at 10:30am in Van Til Hall. Our speaker will be The Very Rev. Dr. J. Stafford Carson (M.A.R.

Over the years, Westminster students, alumni, and faculty have had many connections to Martin Luther King, Jr. and the civil rights movement. In honor of Martin Luther King, Jr. day (January 19), we looked back in our media and news archives to find some of the ways those at Westminster have interacted with issues of race, justice, and African American culture.
