On Thursday, March 15, 2018, Greenville Presbyterian
Theological Seminary will hold the annual Spring Scholarship Banquet in honor
of Dr. Joseph A. Pipa, Jr.’s 20 Years of Service to the Seminary as President
and Professor of Historical & Systematic Theology.
The Banquet will be held at the Pearis Ballroom of the Commerce Club in downtown
Greenville, SC. All proceeds will benefit our Student Scholarship Fund,
which provides financial assistance to students enrolled in Greenville
Presbyterian Theological Seminary’s Divinity program.
Dr. Pipa has served in the PCA since its founding in 1973,
and has pastored churches in Mississippi, Texas, and California. He has taught
at Westminster Theological Seminary, Westminster Seminary California, and at
Greenville Presbyterian Theological Seminary. He was a staff-member for Great
Commission Publications, was instrumental in the formation of Reformed
University Fellowship, and has actively participated in the courts of the
church as a faithful churchman for decades.
One of the core values of Greenville Presbyterian Theological
Seminary is affordability, which is
clearly seen in a favorite saying of Dr. Pipa’s: “We want our men to graduate with a burden for the lost, not a burden
of debt.” Generous support from faithful donors and supporting churches
allow us to keep our tuition rates low so that our students can focus on their
studies, families, and local church involvement. Greenville Presbyterian
Theological Seminary is delighted to honor Dr. Pipa’s prolific ministry by
hosting this Spring Scholarship Banquet in celebration of his service to the
Seminary and Christ’s church.
Tickets are $50/plate, and there will be an opportunity to
give to the Scholarship Fund at the Banquet. All proceeds from the evening will
benefit the Scholarship Fund. Information on how to RSVP is available at
