Agreement increases understanding between seminaries
    October 27 2015 by Rebekah Wahlberg, GGBTS

    Jeff Iorg, president of Golden Gate Baptist Theological Seminary, and John Ong, president of Malaysia Baptist Theological Seminary, signed an agreement Oct. 8 for students and faculty to have the opportunity to pursue their education or research between the two schools.


    The agreement affirms the relationship of the two institutions as fellow Baptist entities and introduces a new way for students and faculty to take advantage of a multicultural experience.
    “Golden Gate Baptist Theological Seminary shares the same vision as us, in that we want to be a blessing to our own nation but also to the nations,” Ong said. “Knowing that Golden Gate Seminary is concerned and is extending the opportunity for partnership is encouraging in that we are not alone and we can work together.”
    The memo specifically lays out policies and guidelines for student admissions, faculty relationships and utilization of facilities between the two seminaries, enabling each to “enhance understanding between the two schools and to develop academic and cultural relationships in the areas of education, research, spiritual endeavors and other activities,” the memo states.
    “We are delighted to work in partnership with the Malaysia Baptist Theological Seminary,” Iorg said. “It gives us an opportunity to invest ourselves in another school that we think is making a very significant contribution and also receive from them what they can do to encourage and help us develop programs that are more effective in the Chinese community.”
