Paul and Mary teach at Union Theological Seminary in Dasmarinas, where they prepare students from the Philippines and other Southeast Asian countries for ministerial leadership. The churches they serve face a shortage of candidates for the ministry and not enough students are pursuing advanced degrees that would qualify them for seminary teaching. Both Paul and Mary are involved in a program to develop future leaders in theological education. “We have seen students who lack confidence and training grow into theological scholars,” Mary says. They enjoy seeing their former students succeed in the ministry.“I have watched my seminary students be ‘transformed’ into committed church pastors,” Paul says.
