Support Students

God is at work at Columbia Seminary, equipping and forming leaders who are inspired to share the good news of Jesus Christ for the church and the world – in congregations large and small, near and far.

“At Columbia, we come from the North, the South, the East, and the West to sit at the table of God. At this table, I pray to know the fullness of what God is calling me to do in my ministry in the world.”  – Eben Alonge, MDiv ’20

Eben Alonge, an international student from Nigeria, interned at North Avenue Presbyterian Church in Atlanta. There, Eben found a mentor in the Rev. Dr. Scott Weimer, who received his DMin from Columbia and sits on the Board of Trustees at Columbia. Dr. Weimer shares what a rich treasure it was to have Eben on staff and how excited he is about the energy that flows for ministry and mission when persons from diverse communities come together in the Holy Spirit.

The generosity of supporters like you makes it possible for imaginative, resilient, and creative students like Eben to answer their call to seminary and a life in ministry.

Make your gift now to help Columbia equip students to go forth, near and far, sharing God’s reconciling love with a world that desperately needs it.
