The Lexington Theological Seminary family gathered Friday, Nov. 15, to bless the 631 S. Limestone campus and prepare to embark on the next chapter in the Seminary’s story at Lexington Green Circle. The Seminary’s living past presidents joined President Charisse L. Gillett, alumni, students, faculty, staff and friends of the Seminary in a service of blessing in the Sanders Chapel and gathered one last time in the fellowship hall for a reception and celebration of the ongoing ministry and mission of the Seminary. Updates about the transformation, as they are available, are available here:
