Berkshire Christian/Eastern University Partnership To End


Berkshire Christian’s newly adopted mission statement and refined focus on preparing individuals for pastoral ministries was the determining factor in the Trustees action to begin negotiations to dissolve Berkshire’s formal relationship with Eastern University. This action has been accepted by Eastern University leadership and the partnership agreement will officially end on April 1, 2019. All praise is given to God for the lives impacted for good through this partnership during the years of its existence.

As Berkshire Christian follows the Lord’s direction into the next chapter, it is envisioned that new partnerships will be more effective in serving to accomplish its mission and vision. At the present time the board has endorsed the pursuit of a partnership with the Advent Christian General Conference for leadership training. Negotiations are currently underway regarding this potential partnership. Additional programmatic changes are forthcoming in an effort to maximize Berkshire’s impact for local church leadership needs in the next decade and beyond. Your support of Berkshire Christian is greatly appreciated as it seeks to remain true to its historic and renewed focus on equipping local church leaders for ministry within the Advent Christian Church.
