Seven students graduate from ministry training programs.

At the 2007 Annual Conference of the Church of the Brethren in Cleveland, Ohio, five Training in Ministry (TRIM) and two Education for Shared Ministry (EFSM) students were recognized for completing their programs.

"We ask God's blessing on these servant leaders as they minister to others in the name of Jesus," said an announcement in the newsletter of the Brethren Academy for Ministerial Leadership, a ministry training partnership of the Church of the Brethren General Board and Bethany Theological Seminary.

TRIM graduates are Ruth Aukerman of Union Bridge (Md.) Church of the Brethren; Ronald Bashore of Mount Wilson Church of the Brethren in Lebanon, Pa.; Carol Mason, a member of the staff of the General Board’s Congregational Life Teams; Martha Shaak of Palmyra (Pa.) Church of the Brethren; and Richard Troyer of Middlebury (Ind.) Church of the Brethren.

EFSM graduates are Philip Adams of Independence (Kan.) Church of the Brethren, and Jeremy Dykes of Jackson Park Church of the Brethren in Jonesborough, Tenn.

The academy announced 2008 new student orientation dates: Feb. 28-March 2, and June 23-26.
