Two Important Happenings at PLTS
by Kathye Hamm
1. Professor Ray Pickett of the Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago has been chosen to become the first Rector of PLTS. He will be the head administrator of the seminary and also our chief spokesperson. He currently teaches New Testament and have been very involved in the Public Church curriculum at LSTC as well as preparing students for Latino/a ministry while the Dean at the Lutheran Seminary Program in the Southwest, in Austin, Texas. He is a native of Oklahoma and served as a pastor in that state as well as in Kansas. He is a graduate of Oral Roberts University, Wartburg Theological Seminary and the University of Sheffield, England. He will be a great addition and leader.
2. Just as Rector Pickett begins his work in Berkeley on June 1, the campus will be actively moving from its location atop the Berkeley hills to the second floor of a building in downtown Berkeley. It’s a mere couple miles as the crow flies (and there are crows here), and a bit longer if you take the gentle slope down the hill. Officially, we begin work at the new campus at the start of the fall semester, but will have the summer to get accustomed to a more compact and interactive work environment. Drop on by and see the place at 2000 Center St., 2nd floor. Best of all, let me know you’re coming and I’ll show you around! firstname.lastname@example.org. But wait until the second week in June!
