LETTER FROM ALUMNI ASSOCIATION PRESIDENT
It is my pleasure to introduce you to the SUM Alumni Association. We hope to be a resource in the coming days for you and the future adventures God has called you to. It is no small thing to be partnered with such a tremendous force of radicals that are literally impacting the globe for Jesus Christ.
Over the years, our beloved SUM has grown from a small drop of rain into a great flowing river from the mountain of God to reach many urban areas around the world. Our graduates continue to plant churches, rescue the lost, and bring life back to dry places around the world. And as the Alumni of SUM continue to grow, we expect a greater need for keeping up with each one of the graduates. The Alumni Association exists to promote ongoing graduate relationships and foster necessary communication between the school, its graduates, and current students.
Philosophers and naysayers in our times are asking for evidence to prove God still cares. They wonder if God still has people who show integrity, or can anyone verify God even exists. SUM Alumni continue to produce the proof through their lives on a daily basis that He Lives! We are changing lives through indigenous leadership and producing positive change wherever God places us!
We hope you come to understand that God has given us all a great privilege to be alive in the last moments of the Last Days. We have been given much and therefore much is required of us as His agents. Let’s do our best to stay connected and utilize the wonderful resources God has given us. This association is a great avenue to help us as graduates to assist each other, network, and promote the advancing of the Kingdom.
We look forward to partnering with you.
All for Jesus,
Brother Glenn Badonsky
SUM Alumni President
