Student Wives Mission Statement
The purpose of the Student Wives Association (SWA) is to provide an opportunity for the wives and fiancées of seminary students to gather together as a means of fellowship, encouragement and support. We aim to provide information programs that will be beneficial to the women in their endeavor to learn more about the pastoral ministry their husbands are training for. All wives and fiancées are of seminary students of CTS are members of the SWA.
Officers and Executive Board
Officers of the Student Wives Association shall be a President, Vice President, Corresponding Secretary, Recording Secretary and Treasurer.
The officers shall be elected by secret ballot in February and installed in April of each year. They are to serve for one year. These officers are to be nominated from the Seminar 1 class (which shall include colloquy and alternate route), Seminary II class (in such cases where the husband is taking delayed vicarage), and Seminary IV class (if this is done, an Interim officer must be installed until the wife returns from the vicarage year). Officers may not succeed themselves. In the event a member of the executive board is not able to complete the term she is elected to, the executive board has the authority to appoint an appropriate person to carry out the duties of that officer to the end of the year.
