Commissioning Service

Since 1962, an annual Commissioning Service has been held for graduating students.  The Commissioning Service is one of the spiritual high points of the school year.  It is not a graduation but is the College's way of sending off the leaving students with its love and prayerful support.  The departing students are commissioned to fulfill their ministry in Christ's Church as they have opportunity.
