BTS Partners with Easter Outreach Ministry

BTS Partners with Easter Outreach Ministry

We are pleased to announce a partnership between BTS and a ministry called Easter Outreach in Philadelphia. The belief that one meal can make a difference resonates very deeply with BTS. We also believe that one meal can open doors and connect neighbors. We believe that one act of kindness in celebration of the resurrection of Jesus is a powerful thing. This year, Easter Outreach plans to give away 8,000 Easter meals to families in need. There are three basic reasons why we wanted to partner with Easter Outreach.

> Because Easter Outreach is missional.

At Biblical Seminary, our faculty and staff understand that missional impacts every aspect of our institution. Our innovative curriculum is geared specifically to prepare women and men to engage our post-Christian culture. That's why we love Easter Outreach. It pushes Christians outside the church walls and onto the streets. It pushes us into people's lives, homes, and living rooms with an Easter meal and an invitation to prayer. We also love the international justice component and the deep partnership with Water is Basic and that part of the money raised will be spent on sustainable development in South Sudan.

> Because Easter Outreach partners with local churches and non-profits.

At Biblical Seminary we love the local church. We seek to serve the church in all its diversity and beauty. That's why we love that Easter Outreach has always been about partnership across denominational, racial, and neighborhood lines. We love that Easter Outreach is partnering with over 65 local churches and more than 25 local non-profits! We want to join in and be a part of what God is doing through this diverse network of churches and non-profits. We also love that we can work with our friends at New Covenant Church in Mt. Airy.

> Because Easter Outreach serves the city we love.

We love Philadelphia. And, if you haven't heard, we are moving to Philadelphia for classes starting in January, 2019. We will be located in the heart of Philadelphia (a formal announcement of the exact location coming soon!). We have had a presence in Philadelphia in the Hunting Park neighborhood through our Joy in the City campus, but we have now sold our main campus and are relocating entirely to Philly. Philadelphia is and will be our place to be the hands and feet of Jesus. This is where we feel God has called us to authentically incarnate the gospel.

We seek to learn and listen to those who have been doing ministry in Philadelphia for a long time. We want to actively join in where the Holy Spirit is moving among the vibrant churches and ministries of the city. We are Philadelphia's seminary - preparing the next generation of servant-leaders. The fact that Easter Outreach started in Philadelphia, works through Philadelphia churches and non-profits, and serves the people of Philadelphia means it is a movement of God that we want to be involved in.

Here's how you can be involved with Easter Outreach this year:

  1. Unity Prayer and Worship Service at New Covenant Church (7500 Germantown Ave. Phila, PA 19119) this Sunday, March 18, 6-7:30 pm. Free parking on the campus.
  2. Meal Packing Night at New Covenant Church on Wednesday, March 28, 7-9 pm. Come and wear any BTS gear you might have! Sign up to volunteer here.
  3. Meal Delivery Day (most of the 8,000 meal are delivered by volunteers to people's homes) on Saturday, March 31, 10 am. Sign up to volunteer here.

Please join us in celebrating the resurrection of Jesus by helping deliver 8,000 meals this Easter season!
