Denver Seminary receives Outstanding Development Practice Award

Denver Seminary is the recipient of the "Outstanding Development Practice by a Ministry" award given by the Christian Stewardship Association (CSA).  This recognition was awarded to Gary Hoag on behalf of Denver Seminary at the annual Christian Stewardship Association Conference held in Albuquerque, New Mexico.  Recipients of the award are to best exemplify commitment, dedication, and model Biblical stewardship for the praise and honor of God.

Each year, organizations are nominated by CSA members that best represent the Biblical model of stewardship.  Gary Hoag, Vice President of Advancement at Denver Seminary, teaches annually at the conference and was present for the award presentation.  He adds, "To receive an award for applying biblical principles in our development practices is a great honor. Our goal put simply is to help people grow in the grace of giving." Hoag and distinguished New Testament professor, Dr. Craig Blomberg, are contributors to the book Revolution in Generosity: Transforming Stewards to be Rich toward God which will be published by Moody Publishers in April 2008.

Denver Seminary teaches Biblical stewardship and resource development through seminary classes, local and regional seminars and individual meetings.  Friends of Denver Seminary are encouraged to use their resources, time and spiritual gifts to invest in the lives of students through mentoring, volunteering or being a financial supporter.  By teaching Biblical truths, modeling faithful stewardship and encouraging others to become involved, Denver Seminary seeks to continue to fulfill its mission of equipping leaders.

Denver Seminary seeks to glorify God by equipping leaders to think biblically, live faithfully and lead wisely for a lifetime. Founded in 1950, Denver Seminary is an interdenominational, evangelical graduate seminary serving men and women from around the world.  In its 58 year history, the seminary has gained the reputation as one of the top twenty schools in size among accredited, graduate-level seminaries in the U.S. and Canada and is accredited by the Association of Theological Schools and the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools.  Currently, more than 900 students are enrolled in our Master of Divinity, Master of Arts, and Doctor of Ministry degree programs.  For more information about Denver Seminary, please visit
